I have a SPF record and someone is spoofing it and the my email go to spam. I have a newsletter that I need to get out and I am having problems. Here is the current SPF file and it is not working like it should. I am in the US and someone is spoofing my email address from South America.

Here is my SPF record.

v=spf1 a mx ptr ?all TTL 14400

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks


I have used this told me that my SPF was not good. But it does not tell me what to change it to. ?

Have you used a free service like mxtoolbox to check your spf and dkim records?
