Hi all, I am not too familiar with SPF records, i just know they ensure that the sending server for a particular domain is authorized to send mail etc (at least i think, let me know if i am wrong).
My mail is hosted with Office 365, and when i set this up it asked me to create an SPF record on the domain which was the following:
v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
Can someone let me know what the above does? I though it would allow mail to be send that is routed through office 365 servers but mail being sent from my domain elsewhere would fail, is this not what is happening?
I only ask because I have a Joomla website that can send out messages using PHP mail and it sends out successfully, i would of thought that it would have failed with a correct SPF record that only allows office 365 to send mail. Could someone clear this up for me.
The domain is animalsanctuary.org.uk if that helps!
