Hello,

I have following settings in Exim Configuration Manager, cPanel v78:

Smarthost support - * mta.brand.tld
Autodiscovery SPF include hosts from the smarthost route list - Off
SPF include hosts for all domains on this system - node.brand.tld

It actually added in zone file:
... include:node.brand.tld include:brand.tld...

Why it adds include:brand.tld although Autodiscovery SPF is OFF.

If I have no smarthost support enabled - it works as expected - adds only include:node.brand.tld

Is this a bug?

Hello @rahnev,

I've been unable to reproduce this behavior on a test system (the zone only populates a single include: entry in the TXT record). Can you open a support ticket so we can see what's happening on your system? You can post the ticket number here and I'll link this thread to it.

Thank you.

@cPanelMichael

yes, there is no problem. I managed to get what happened.

When cPanel updated to v78 the following option was ON by default and actually it added include:brand.tld to zone files.
Autodiscovery SPF include hosts from the smarthost route list

However I didn't noticed it then. And after I added "SPF include hosts for all domains on this system - node.brand.tld" found both records in zone files.

So everything is OK. Thanks.
