    exim can be confgured to reject messages which fail SPF and DKIM:

    "Reject mail at SMTP time if the sender fails SPF checks."
    "Reject mail at DKIM time if the sender fails SPF checks."

    Enabling this options will reject messagess from domains which do not have SPF and DKIM records set in DNS or it will only reject messages of domains which SPF and DKIM do not match the records in DNS?

    Hello :)

    It's part of Exim, which queries the SPF/DKIM information to ensure it passes, it does not just check that the record exists.

    Thank you.
