    22 The squiggle before the "all" means that if an email from you fails, it will be considered a "soft" fail. Technically that means the server should accept it but may mark is as dubious (most likely it will end up the spam folder).
     22If you also send email from your Drupal web site (e.g. password reminders or new account welcome messages), you should also include your primary host, e.g.:
     23
     24{{{
     25v=spf1 a:spf.mayfirst.org a:viewsic.mayfirst.org ~all
     26}}}
    2327
    2428If you send email from May First/People link and you ''also'' send email from a different location (for example, you send email using our email list software for you typically relay your normal email through a different provider), then you will need to create an SPF record that includes both a:spf.mayfirst.org and whatever your other providers has designated for SPF records.

     30The squiggle before the "all" means that if an email from you fails, it will be considered a "soft" fail. Technically that means the server should accept it but may mark is as dubious (most likely it will end up the spam folder).
