Does the host server need to have a SPF & Domain Key?

I am trying to resolve some issues with a few hosts rejecting our email, i've gotten my host rpovider to create rDNS record, and I created SPF and domain keys for all my virtual hosts.

I've run what tests I can to verify things are correct and haven't found anything glaringly wrong.

By default your Cpanel machine will send outbound mail using the MAIN IP address of the server. So you need to make sure that your SPF records for all of your domains also indicate that your primary hostname / IP for the machine is an allowed sender.

You shouldn't need to have DK on the primary hostname.

And, if you're referring to AOL, Yahoo, Comcast, and others rejecting your mail - well, it happens. Some are worse than others.
