spf record published but not found

I put spf record in networksolutions txt record tab. Whenever I check on mxtoolbox or http://www.kitterman.com/spf/validate.html i found No valid SPF record found of either type TXT or type SPF.

we put following record in networksolutions.com
"v=spf1 mx a ptr a:stackteck.com a:stackteckmatrix.com include:spf.isheriff.com ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: mx:stackteck.com mx:stackteckmatrix.com ~all"

if these correct entries kept? do we need to make any changes here?

Required masters help to put proper record and populate correctly.

You have create a spf record in all Forward Lookup zones.

The correct entrie is: "v=spf1 ip4: ip4:  -all"

The format is correct, but I'm guessing it includes some unnecessary entries (I could be wrong, I don't know your setup).  You only need to include entries for IPs which will be sending email for your domain.

I would login to Network Solutions and verify that the record is there.  The issue might be as simple not saving the changes.  The interface should show all your TXT records.

The syntax for the SPF record is valid, however it looks a bit repetitive, and possibly includes a few IPs more than once. Simplicity is always good.

The last bit ~all tells other mail servers that SPF mismatches are SOFTFAIL, meaning email from anywhere will probably still be accepted, and the SPF setup will not really do anything. For it to work properly, you should use -all.

If you can post your domain name, someone can check if the required SPF record is there. Some ISPs update DNS from a user interface as part of a periodic zone transfer, so it may take hours for the records you see to actually be pout in place.

my domain name is stackteck.com

There is definitely no SPF record in place for that domain. Maybe get in touch with whoever looks after DNS for you?  Something seems to be broken.
