Hi, I have a SBS2011 Server with multiple domains on it. Nearly all users use pop3 to collect e mail but some use Exchange Active Sync. I want to create a SPF record which includes my static IP and my ISP smart hosts, which is relay.mail.timico.net ?

Create a TXT record with this value (obviously, fix the x.x.x.x, it should be your public IP address)

"v=spf1 ip4:x.x.x.x a:relay.mail.timico.net -all"

Also, you may already know this, but that SPF record needs to be created on the authoritative DNS server(s) for your registered domain, not the DNS service on the SBS server. You'll most likely use your domain registrar's DNS control panel to create it.

(Ignore this comment if you were already aware of this.)
