If you are sending mails through gmail, then make sure to add their sending IP's to the SPF record for your domains.

If you are only sending through gmail, then this is all you need for your SPF records.
v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all

Despite its humble beginnings, phishing has come a long way since those first crudely constructed emails. Today, phishing sites can appear and disappear in the length of a coffee break, and it takes more than a little know-how to keep your clients secure.

one thing i am only not able to understand client is not having any exchange installed in their so whats the need of changing MX records and adding spf records in DNS as per my knowledge and understanding if we configure outlook as per gmail settings it will work through internet then whats the use of DNS in it.

If your mails are being sent from a Google apps account, then the SPF record for your domain needs to have Google's SPF include like I pasted above, along with any other servers that will be sending mail for a specific domain.

If your mails will be delivered to your Google apps mailboxes, then the MX record for your domain needs to be setup to direct mail to those servers.
