    We host our own email server and published an SPF record on our DNS server. However, it would appear this SPF record is not being seen by recipients, as shown by dnsreports.com. Exact report:

    Your domain does not have an SPF record. This means that spammers can easily send out E-mail that looks like it came from your domain, which can make your domain look bad (if the recipient thinks you really sent it), and can cost you money (when people complain to you, rather than the spammer). You may want to add an SPF record ASAP, as 01 Oct 2004 was the target date for domains to have SPF records in place (Hotmail, for example, started checking SPF records on 01 Oct 2004).

    Any ideas why its not being seen? Thanks.
