I have somedomain.com on IP 188.8.131.52
I send/receive mail using Outlook connecting to mail.somedomain.com
So my DNS records for somedomain.com are the typical:
www.somedomain.com >>> A >>> 184.108.40.206 somedomain.com >>> A >>> 220.127.116.11 somedomain.com >>> MX >>> mail.somedomain.com mail.somedomain.com >>> A >>> 18.104.22.168
But I also send some mails (using directly PHP mail function) from another server that is on anotherdomain.com and IP 22.214.171.124
The SPF created by the wizard is this:
v=spf1 a mx ip4:126.96.36.199 mx:mail.somedomain.com ip4:188.8.131.52 -all
But I get some mails returning back when sent from 184.108.40.206 with the message:
SPF Failed - not authorized message
Do you know what the right SPF value is for this scenario?
EDIT 1: as asked by Minsuk Song I post the SPF failed message
This message was created automatically by mail delivery software. A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error.

EDIT 2: as correctly noticed by nickgrim when I send mail from IP 18.104.22.168 I send them using an address that is on the somedomain.com (which is on IP 22.214.171.124). The reason I do this is that in case the mail gets rejected for any reason (as it happened) I get notified on an existing address
