I am getting "softfail error" for the current spf record what should i do?
This is the original mail i got from my domain.
I added the spf record in my dns.
v=spf1 mx mx:smtp.secureserver.net include:smtp.secureserver.net ~all
Unfortunately I entered smtp server name in spf record.
Here I am using my domain only for sending purpose.So, I didn't add any MX records. In the SPF record my domain has to be passed for the span checking. What are the things i need to focus?
Could you please explain? How should i write the SPF record
