Default DNS / SPF / mailserver / hostname HELO question

I've got a problem with correctly setting up the SPF for my domains.

When I send a mail from webmaster@tradeforum.ch to spf-test@openspf.org I get the result: from = pass, HELO = none

I am trying to get HELO = pass

Then I try this SPF checking tool:

sending IP:
sender: webmaster@tradeforum.ch
hostname: server2.swisswebhost.ch

server2.swisswebhost.ch resolves to resolves to server2.swisswebhost.ch which is a match
Unable to resolve server2.swisswebhost.ch in the DNS

I wonder what the last error means, and how to get rid of it?
"unable to resolve server2.swisswebhost.ch in the DNS"?

Thank you in advance for your help!

I think it's a bug/error in that script or smth, since i can't find anything strange in your zone records ..

create a gmail account and send a mail to it, then check complete headers and you'll see a dkim/domainkey/spf check ..
