    Hello,

    I have dedicated an IP address to a reseller account, but each time he creates a new user account and he would like to tick the Enable the SPF record, it stands a wrong IP address (not the one that it is supposed to do).

    What I mean is, that the site will be created with the 89.42.26.127 IP, but the SPF record will be 89.42.26.2

    Is this a bug?

    Please see the attached picture.

    Hello :)

    The SPF record configured by cPanel will use the main server IP address. This is by design. The use of "+a" and "+mx" in the SPF record accounts for the possibility the domain name is assigned a dedicated IP address.

    Thank you.
