I am trying build and publish a SPF record correctly.  We have Small Business Server 2011 which has Exchange 2010.  Our domain is hosted by a third party.  We have two domain names, one that points to another.  When creating the SPF,  I will be using the internal IP address  of our SBS that sends mail.  I was going to include the following TXT under my forward lookup zone: "v=spf1 mx a ip4: -all"  I understand that I also need to publish the SPF records with the DNS servers hosting our domain.  My question is,  do I provide my host domain provider the same TXT record I created for my mail server which has my internal IP?
