Thanks for the help

I used this episode to help me understand why some of my email was ending up in people's spam box. I added an SPF record, and now all is well! Thanks.

Great explanation!

It's been a while since I set up my email - server with SPF, DKIM and DMARC. Since I'm about to migrate it to another server this has been a valuable reminder of what SPF is about. I also think it is much clearer than every guide I read at the time I had to set it up.

Well written by deepgeek and well read and extended by Klaatu - Thank you two!
