You need a nameserver, e.g. BIND. The SPF record goes into the zone file of a domain.

in case i m using a domain just fr sending email, do i still need to install packages for implementing SPF or just make entry in zone file of DNS, I just read some where that in case it is an incoming mail server we need to add SPF packages so that it can check fr the authentication of email,
as far as outgoing mail server is concerned need to edit only the zone.

is that how it works ?

In case of an outgoing mail server, you just need to edit the zone.

Default SPF implementation

hi there

In case if we need to implement the SPF on a domain (sending.com) such that we have allowed some other domain (example.com - SPF has already been implemented on example.com) to send emails on the behalf of our domain (sending.com), how to write down the SPF records for that.

Do we need to use the include option for that.

i have tried using this wizard to create SPF record but with no luck

http://old.openspf.org/wizard.html?mydomain=example.com

Please help
