    Re: DNSStuff Error

    The external tests will fail even when Exchange is configured correctly. That is because the FQDN Exchange shows for incoming email is different than for outbound.

    As long as you have a matching PTR, host name and FQDN on the Send Connector you should be fine.

    SPF records are a DNS entry, and you can find the format for it by simply searching for SPF records. A number of sites have wizards to build the DNS entry for you to paste in to your DNS provider.
