TOPIC: Server 2003 Sender Policy Framework

Server 2003 Sender Policy Framework 12 years 5 months ago #15969

Hello all,

I am trying to setup SPF on my 2003 server but I can't seem to make it work despite how easy it seems to be...

I'm using wizard to setup my spf record which I have:
v=spf1 a mx -all

I put this into my dns records on my server like so:
open, right click add "Other new record" and select "Text"

In that text file I add my line (v=spf1 a mx -all) and save it. As far as I know this should do it...but when i go to and run my domain agianst that I still get a warning saying there is no spf record for my domain.

Any help would be appreciatted for this annoying problem.

To configure SPF records in the Windows Server 2003 DNS, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click DNS.

2. In the left pane, expand the DNS server object, and then expand Forward Lookup Zones.

3. Right-click the domain folder to which you want to add the SPF record, and then click Other New Records.

4. In the Select a resource record type list, click Text (TXT), and then click Create Record.

5. If you add a record for the parent domain, leave the Record name box blank. If you do not add a record for the parent domain, type the single part name of the domain in the Record name box.

6. In the Text box, type v=spf1 mx -all.

7. Click OK, and then click Done.


Compare what your line in the Text Box with Step-6 above. I see an additional character 'a' in yours. I don't know if it makes any difference, but thought I would point out.

I know it should work just that easy but for some reason It's not showing up at I'm sure its something wrong with our DNS setup but I'm hoping someone has seen a similiar problem.

Thanks for you help,

'a' or no 'a' that depends on what options you chose at OpenSPF to create your SPF record.

You should put the SPF record in double quotes. Your spf record should be something like this. "v=spf1 a mx ~all"

Hope this helps.
