SPF "and" check

At the moment the SPF check does an OR check.

As we have different Smarthost, which also act as backups when one is down, we have more than one SPF entry which all should be in the SPF DNS record. So an option to do an AND check instead of OR only, would be great.

This SPF check is really a good function!

Is this something you could implement in a next version? Also the Forwarding for shared Mailboxes would be great. Thanks for your feedback.

Technically you could do this with what is there now. For example:

SPF Record Check: spf.domain.com,1.2.3.4

The above would check if spf.domain.com OR 1.2.3.4 exists in the spf string. To do what you want you could do this:

SPF Record Check: include:spf.domain.com IPv4:1.2.3.4,1.2.3.4,spf.domain.com

The above would check if "include:spf.domain.com IPv4:1.2.3.4" OR "1.2.3.4" exists in the string.

 

See it is only checking for the existence of those words in the SPF record and not actually validating anything. You can just modify the value in the admin settings to match what you are typically putting in.

Of course! Thanks for the explanation. So I only have to check that they all have our entries in the same order, so I can check them. All clear now, and solved!

@madpad Or you could multiple entries in there with different orders to cover yourself unless you rather them all be standardized.

Yep that would work too. But it's a good idea to standardize all of them, I think most of them are already anyway, like that we will find the once which are not very fast.
