I have a customer who uses a hosted Exchange server to handle emails from Outlook etc for their staff.  They also have a questionnaire that they send out to customers via their website which is sent via their web devs servers using my customer's domain so the recipient sees it as having come directly from my customer.

I need to set up an SPF record that references both servers thus:
Hosted Exchange server - mailserver.hostedexchangedomain.com
Web Dev Server - 123.456.789.1

Can anyone give me the correct syntax for this please?

Thanks

This should work:

v=spf1 a:mailserver.hostedexchangedomain.com ip4:123.456.789.1 -all

Not a problem! I got the deletion notification email shortly after I posted a comment, so I'm guessing that's exactly what happened.
