    I could send, but not receive emails from gmail with the error:

    This is a CentOS5 mailserver using PowerDNS with ISPConfig3 and the MTA is postfix with courier-imap and courier-authlib.

    I searched online and figured out that the following could be the reason of the problem.

    I tried to add a SPF records under DNS >> Domain DNS >> TXT records as advised at

    But what should go in the 'Hostname' field against the 'Text' field (v=spf1 ~all)? Whether hostname be 'mydomain.tld.' or ''?

    Thanks in advance.
