Edit your DNS settings through the registrar of your domain, and add a TXT record (though if there's already one there containing spf settings, don't add another)

The "host" for the DNS entry should just be your domain name. eg mydomain.com

There's a tool for generating the value here:

My understanding is that the last option for the wizard ("How strict should be the servers treating the emails?") should be set to "Fail".
