Check these two sites, as they are intended to generate SPF records for you. You have to fill in the information, and it will create the record you need to add to your DNS entries:

The email header states:

554 5.7.1 Your mail could not be delivered because the recipient is only accepting mail from specific email addresses.

That sounds like they blacklisted / blocked you and doesn't have anything to do with SPF at all.

I have seen AOL block emails with this NDR in the past due to lack of SPF, which it shows in the headers..

This is what your SPF record should look like in theory, the IP4: section should be used for additional mail servers (relay) that you have that would be sending outbound ..

db-eng.com.  IN TXT "v=spf1 mx a ip4:167.206.198.99, ip4:96.56.143.106 ~all"

i had already checked that; not on any blacklist
at the bottom of the output you will notice it specifically says no SPF record

But an individual can blacklist your domain for not meeting requirements or consistent spam. Happens all the time.
