    Hi, I looked around but couldn't find anything helpful..

    So I just got a dedicated server with cPanel/WHM and I would like to install SPF, Domain Keys and DKIM so I can send emails safely.. I found some tutorial online that I followed Installing DomainKeys and SPF Records :: The cPanel Admin

    Say the hostname of my server is host.example.com and I have created 2 accounts on them www.domain1.com and www.domain.com..

    I added SPF for all three host.example.com, www.domain1.com, www.domain.com

    So TXT records were automatically added for all three (host.example.com, www.domain1.com, www.domain.com) with the same value "v=spf1 a mx -all"

    But the emails sent (programmatically through PHP mail function) from both www.domain1.com and Welcome to DOMAIN2.COM have headers with neutral SPF. I should add that emails for www.domain1.com and www.domain.com are hosted at Google. But I send newsletter from the dedicated server.

    And when I check Brandon Checketts , it says this:


    Code:
    Helo Address = host.example.com
    
    From Address = me@domain1.com
    
    From IP      = 108.115.109.67
    [B]
    SPF Record Lookup[/B]
    
    Looking up TXT SPF record for domain1.comFound the following namesevers for domain1.com: ns1.example.com ns2.example.comRetrieved this SPF Record: [B]v=spf1 a mx ~all[/B] (TTL = 14400)[B]Result: None (No applicable sender policy available)[/B]
    
    
    [B]Result code: none[/B]Local Explanation: domain1.com: No applicable sender policy availablespf_header = Received-SPF: none (domain1.com: No applicable sender policy available) receiver=xpgrinders.com; identity=mfrom; envelope-from="me@domain1.com"; helo=host.example.com; client-ip=108.115.109.67
    And this is the headers from an email sent programmatically from domain1.com to a gmail account pete_ampago@gmail.com
