Description

  • I use¬†SolarWinds Mail Assure for outbound mail
  • When I check the SPF record I get the error: Too many MX resource records

Environment

  • SolarWinds Mail Assure

Solution

  • Mail Assure does not use the inbound filtering hosts to send mail
  • The outbound servers are listed on the SPF record: spf.mtaroutes.com
  • When configuring your SPF record for Mail Assure:
    • Add: include:spf.mtaroutes.com
    • Remove: mx
  • If mail for your domain will only be sent through Mail Assure your SPF record should be: v=spf1 include:spf.mtaroutes.com -all
