    In cpanel I activated Email Authentication and enabled SPF which gave me an SPF record. I went into Advanced DNS Zone Editor and found the record listed as type TXT. When I validate the SPF records at SPF Query Tool:
    /http://www.kitterman.com/spf/validate.html

    I get the following error:

    "The TXT records found for your domain are:
    v=spf1 +a +mx +ip4:66.225.xx.xx ~all

    SPF records should also be published in DNS as type SPF records.
    No type SPF records found."

    How do I create the "type SPF" record? In Advanced DNS Zone Editor the drop-down only has three choices A, CNAME & TXT. How do I get "type" SPF?

    Thanks for the link, sorry I did not find that before posting. This all started because of the error message from the record checker website that I used.

    Yes it's terribly annoying that every checker I've seen (from mxtoolbox.com to check-auth@verifier.port25.com, etc.,) all report SPF records:none in their reports (which from the links i've read here is a deprecated record type), and fail to recognize the TXT record.
