    Hi all,

    OK I am having a problem with my customers sending emails to AOL. Alot of our customers have forums, so when there members subscribe to a thread they get an email everytime a post is made. We are starting to get bounce backs from AOL and when doing abit of looking into this I saw that AOL are using the SPF system.

    My question is how do I add the SPF records for certain domains. I have search through the forums and saw conflicting posts.

    Had anyone installed the records for multiple domains?


    Thanks in advance

    you may enable adding spf records in you dns zone templates (WHM ->DNS Functions ->Edit dns zone templates) for example like following:

    %domain%. IN TXT "v=spf1 mx"


    if you need add spf records to selected domain you may do this by editing approriate domain zone fils in WHM ->DNS Functions -> Edit DNS Zone

    Just remember that you cannot forward email with SPF set:

    From their site:
