    Hello!

    I rented a new server and noticed his ip address is blocked by microsoft. To avoid problems i setup exim to relay vía one of my other smtp servers.

    Everything works ok but if i see the headers on emails recived by gmail i have a "softfail warning".

    spf=softfail (google.com: domain of transitioning test@testing.com does not designate 1.2.3.4 as permitted sender) smtp.mailfrom=test@testing.com
    How can i instruct WHM to add the ip 1.2.3.4 to every spf record in current and new accounts?

    Thanks!
