SPF records were deprecated in 2014 and TXT records are taken their place to show authorized E-mail servers for a domain. If you run your email domain against both www.kitterman.com and mxtoolbox.com, both will show errors if your domain uses SPF records in DNS.
I cannot find anything about the syntax for the TXT records they are looking for either Amazons Route 53 and other generic DNS servers.
Can you help?

here is the SPF syntax
format is the same; difference is you are using a TXT type of DNS record instead of SPF

Hello Seth, If I understand you right the syntax would be   v=TXT ip4:69.84.1.1/27
