SPF record for Single Server, Single Static IP address and Single Domain

We have an SBS 2003 server and use exchange for sending and receiving email. We have a single domain ourdomain.co.uk and a single static IP Address 81.149.xxx.xxx

I have used the wizzard at openspf.org to create an SPF record created based on the following:-

We send out email only from our SBS 2003 box not from any other IP Address, Server or location. We have a sigle MX record.

Our Domain is hosted by easyspace. I need to tell them the exact text to be entered for the SPF record. What would the SPF record be or what addtion information is needed to create it?

Can I check that it was a question mark before the all part of the statement and not a minus symbol?
What is the difference...many of the records have a minus symbol?

so I should replace  "v=spf1 mx ?all"  
with
"v=spf1 mx ~all"
Correct?
