    The SPF section in PSA 8.x.x provides simple definitions of the various SPF application options. Can anyone offer advice/experience with what choices work best?

    Thanks for the reply--- I'm fairly familiar with SPF, but I was really asking which of the setting levels in Plesk 8.1 are the most effective?

    so I can ask you ;-)

    Where do I have to enter the generated SPF text of 'openspf.org'?

    in
    domain -> DNS -> TXT

    or

    server -> mail -> SPF protection?

    ...in domain -> DNS -> TXT

    See the example provided at http://www.dnsstuff.com

    In the control panel (Server -> Mail) you may select the level of SPF implementation.

    --Never Block
    --Temporary error notice
    --Reject when resolves to "fail" (this is my current setting)
    --Reject when resolves to "soft fail"
    --Reject when resolves to "neutral"
    --Reject when not resolve to "pass"

    Is it correct if I use the domain mail.foo.com or do I have to take www.foo.com or anything else for entering the TXT values?

    If your server is foo.com and your hosted domains use the foo.com mail server, then the text line in your default DNS would read:

    <domain>. TXT v=spf1 a mx ptr include:foo.com ~all

    and the DNS for all hosted domains would have a corresponding TXT DNS entry:

    hostedSite.com TXT v=spf1 a mx ptr include:foo.com ~all

    You should add it to the default DNS in the Server CP and then manually apply it to the DNS record of currently hosted domains.
