    hi,
    has anyone tried this, when you allocate your domain (which has a SPF record set) a dedicated IP SPF record still needs to be set up for the nameserver IP which might be different from your dedicated IP.

    so when you send mails (from domain having dedicated IP) to mailservers who verify SPF, you can see SPF : FAIL
    when you enter the same IP as of your nameserver and not your dedicated one it says PASS.

    I think when you still use the Nameserver IP which can be used by other domains hosted by on server, its a threat that any of hosted domain can still go about Phishing your ID ??

    Any ideas or suggestion to correct me on this if iam wrong !!!

    See ya,
    mohit

    Cannot use SPF when you host other domains that forward email. It states so right in their FAQ's. Your email will be rejected by someone that uses strict SPF. (Not everyone does that uses SPF.)
