    I need to change the ip of my mail server. Does this mean I need to change the ip address of all spf records to match the changed ip as well? Thanks.

    Hi rligg,

    Maybe a bit out of subject, but to ease this kind of thing, we created a spf.example.net record here and then we added "v=spf1 a mx include:spf.example.net ~all" in our cPanel's zone template.

    This saves us the issue of maintaining SPF records when we migrate customers from one server to another ;)

    Hope this helps (in the future at least)!

    If you will use cpanel function for IP changing / moving it will automatically rewrite all instances of old IP.

    Hello :)

    You should use the IP Migration Wizard when changing the IP address to ensure the accounts and their DNS Zones are updated:

    "WHM Home >> IP Function >> IP Migration Wizard"

    Thank you.
