from MX Record?: NoYes

Are emails sent
from all servers of
this domain?: NoYes

Are emails sent
from other A Records?:

Are emails sent
from other MX Records?:

Are emails sent
from other IP addresses?:
Inherit SPF Record
from this zone?:

Do the above entries
contain all hosts
allowed to send emails
for this domain?:

Basically all i need really is a breakdown on what to include...
Basically it's what it is saying..
ie: If you are using an A record to send email set it to yes. If not, set it to no
It's the same for all the other option..
(it's all about how you have set up your DNS)

A nice way to see if the SPF record is okay, is by sending an email to a gmail account.

Looking at the headers of the email you will see:

a good SPF record example: Received-SPF: pass (google.com: domain of your@emailaddress.tld designates ip_from_your_server as permitted sender)

a bad SPF record example: Received-SPF: pass (google.com: best guess record for domain of your@emailaddress.tld designates ip_from_your_server as permitted sender)
(note the: "best guess record for" part!)
