    Hello, ok i have just had some mail rejected because user ID settings.

    I have created an spf record in domains dns setting and wish to know if i have done this correctly.

    I don't have a normal email setup though, email is collect from main web server via fetchmail and is stored on local office mail server where users gets access via IMAP.

    Mail is sent via ISP smtp server as i have to enter a user name and password for sending and have not yet worked out how to to this for domain smtp on plesk server for multiple users.

    So my local mail server is set as subdomain of main domain on plesk server
    plesk server domain =

    office mail server =

    this is send via ISP smtp

    I have created an spf txt record for domain.com which looks like

    domain.com. TXT domain.com IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx a:eek:fficemail.domain.com ~all"

    Is this correct or will i also need to add or just be the ISP smtp server?

    many thanks

    I'm not positive, but I think you may need to add an "include:yourisp.com" for your ISP if that's what you're using for SMTP.

    I usually use this wizard...
