    v1 v2  
    77What I initially did was copy and paste everything it said exactly, so for example: v=spf1 a:spf.mayfirst.org a:viewsic.mayfirst.org ~all -- and this didn't provide SPF for the domain. I think it could be written differently, such as perhaps just to switch out mayfirst.org with [domainname.com] and instructions to replace this with the relevant domain name, if that is what is supposed to happen.

    1111SPF RECORD ENTRY:
     
    17174. Enter value, replacing brackets with ip address and minus quotations, as:"v=spf1 ip4:[enter ip address here] -all"
    18185. Add another record using the same process but in the value replace as follows: v=spf1 include=domainname.com -all
    19 6. For number 5, I used my own domain name, but I believe you can also add others following another format (search online for how to "include" more SPF records) this is to allow commercial or other services to send email for you.
