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".

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.
