    Hi,

    I noted in Dave Nickason's reply to Mark (5/19 @ 11:47) that there is a
    wizard to help set up an SPF record that can then be entered into DNS to
    help combat spam.

    I was able to get through the wizard and generate the SPF text to be
    entered, but being a DNS moron I have no clue where/how to enter it into
    DNS. Can someone point me to some info on this?

  2. Just add the txt record. The actual record is for the root of the
    domain, so would look like:

    mydomain.com. in txt "spf text"

    The quotes are important.

    For example, look at the SPF records for hodgsonfamily.org - in
    nslookup, do set type=txt then just type in hodgsonfamily.org, you
    will get the SPF record.

    Andrew.
