You will find all the help you need here.I've recently encountered emails being bounced by a couple of email
servers with an error of something like "Sender is forged (SPF
Fail)". I use my own domain-based address in the From field and use
my ISP's SMTP server for outbound email.
Looking into this further, it appears that SPF (Sender Policy
Framework) is intended to enable an email server to detect probable
spam by checking that the sending server matches those specified in
the DNS record for the sender address domain.
Is SPF workable and effective? - Many commentators suggest neither.
Is SPF in widespread use? I've been told by my domain host support
contact that most/none of the larger service providers support it.
What is the best way to overcome the SPF bounced emails problem?
[Running my own email server is not a preferred option]
Both your and Bob's responses imply it's simple to resolve: it looks
arcane, tricky, and fraught with maintenance problems to me.
I'm struggling to understand WTF I should jump thru hoops for these
minority email servers? I can send email to recipients on *all* of the
major email services in the UK without bounces, so who is out of step?
