Re: IBM i smtp and SPF



fixed

Sounds like he is adding an SPF record for your domain so you should be
good.

If your i is set up to use a mail server/router that has an SPF record
(which is what it sounds like) you should be good.

You can verify using CHGSMTPA and look at the Mail Router (and the
Forwarding Mail Hub Server) parms to make sure the correct mail router is
listed. Also make sure Firewall is set to *YES.

Our parent corp email admin sent us this note, and we are wondering what
it means for our Power i
servers that spit out many emails from apps using a vendor tool (rjs smtp).
Have read the wiki on SPF but not sure what if anything we need to do.
All our DNS is handled by the Parent Corp group.

I have your request to add an SPF record for xyz.com
Before I make any changes here its important to note that once SPF has
been added to your domain, any smtp servers
that send mail on behalf of xyz will start to fail for any servers that
require SPF record.
