    Google says i should use their domain in SPF record. Why?



    Hello,

    i have received an e-mail from my website to my gmail SPAM box. I checked that e-mail source code SPF record, it shows: Result for IP address XY: NEUTRAL.

    Received-SPF: neutral (google.com: 185.201.18.243 is neither permitted nor denied by best guess record for domain of [email protected]) client-ip=185.201.18.243;
    I clicked for details and was brought to https://support.google.com/a/answer/33786 where they suggest to delete existing DNS TXT SPF record in my hosting account and create new with value "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all"
    I do not understand why should i use their domain. Anyone knows?
    I though i should use the domain or IP that is the one that relay the e-mail into the internet (my server public IP or address like mail.mydomain.com).

    Actually my hosting provider says i have to use their domain in SPF in order e-mail is relayed thru their antispam system.

    Is this useful / helpfull? Yes | No
    Your spf should be pointing to your own domain as far as i understand ...but it should be of your website domain in your text record. Also make sure you have set a dkim and lastly google google postmaster tools. Send a message again after waiting for dns to update then view as original to see if it says spf pass, dkim pass note even with his ive sen mails go to spam there are a ton of things that can make mail go to spam.

    Try this v=spf1 +mx +a:[email protected] +a:[email protected] +ip4:01.001.0.000 +include:relay.mailchannels.net -all as a text record for your dns mx records

    On our cpanel we have a mail deliverbility option which set up spf for you but even this is wrong according to google what i wrote above is all that i could find that works for me.
