Hi guys

Lets say I have my company.com DNS record which points to a hosted server where I host my website.
Then I have a MX record mail.company.com for my email and the appropriate SPF record.

What DNS changes do I need to do to allow 3rd party company to send emails on my behalf from the address news.company.com ?

you need to add every mail server that will send on your behalf to the spf record.
also have a look at adding a txt file or domain key but to memory these are totally necessary.

So just SPF ?
I know that probably without knowing exact details you wont be able to tell me exactly what to add but can you point me into any direction ?
Maybe some SPF example or at least a good, simple article...
