About this task

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is a technique based on a special DNS record to identify valid mail senders. Here, you can select the options that affect an SPF policy rule.

Follow these steps

  1. Select which SPF results you want as a condition of your rule.
    Select one or more of the following check boxes:
    • None: The domain does not have an SPF record.
    • Pass: The SPF record designates the host to be allowed to send.
    • Fail: The SPF record has designated the host as NOT being allowed to send.
    • SoftFail: The SPF record has designated the host as NOT being allowed to send, but is in transition.
    • Error: A syntax or evaluation error has occurred.
  2. Select Next.
