Hey guys, just trying to get my SPF records sorted on GoDaddy.. anyways, when I run a test from http://www.kitterman.com/spf/validate.html I get this message:

SPF records are primarily published in DNS as TXT records.

The TXT records found for your domain are:
v=spf1 a mx ptr ip4:XX.XX.XX.XX ptr:XX.XX.XX.XX ~all 

SPF records should also be published in DNS as type SPF records.
No type SPF records found.

Checking to see if there is a valid SPF record. 

Found v=spf1 record for domain.ca: 
v=spf1 a mx ptr ip4:XX.XX.XX.XX ptr:XX.XX.XX.XX ~all 

Results - PermError SPF Permanent Error: Invalid domain found (use FQDN): XX.XX.XX.XX

Open in new window

Does anyone know why this is? Do I have a bad txt record? Also does this also act as what they call "Reverse DNS"??
