I have a domain set up with email. When I try to send an email through that address from Outlook at home, I get a bounced message saying

550-SPF: [ip address] is not allowed to send mail from 550 [domain]

How do i fix this? In searching around I've found some posts that indicate that I need a text record. The one on the server currently is

v=spf1 +a +mx -all
