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?

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

with
"v=spf1 mx ~all"
Correct?
