SPF Check:

1. Specify domain name

Enter a domain to be checked for the SPF record
2. Specify IP address (optional)
Enter any IP address to check if it is authorized to send e-mails by the SPF record

What is the SPF lookup for?

With the SPF lookup you analyze the SPF record of a domain for errors, security risks and authorized IP addresses. Optionally, you can specify an IP address to check if it is authorized to send e-mail on behalf of the domain. The SPF lookup analyzes registered TXT records in real time. If you want to specify an SPF record manually, use the SPF Analyzer.

Additional external SPF records

We could find other records authorized in the SPF record

v=spf1 exists:%{i}._spf.mta.salesforce.com -all
v=spf1 ip4: ip4: ip4: ip4: ip6:2a01:111:f400::/48 ip6:2a01:111:f403::/49 ip6:2a01:111:f403:8000::/51 ip6:2a01:111:f403:c000::/51 ip6:2a01:111:f403:f000::/52 -all

Authorize IP addresses with markers

When SPF is evaluated, macros can specifically authorize Ip addresses based on the request or connection of the user or client (RFC7208 )


E-Mail handling

How should the checkHost() function of the e-mail server handle the e-mail? (syntax )

Fail (non-compliant e-mails are rejected)

Will be forwarded to another SPF record?

There is no reference to any other SPF record

Are the server addresses allowed to send e-mails?

In the SPF entry the mechanism 'a' has not been set.

Are the registered mail servers allowed to send e-mails?

In the SPF entry the mechanism 'mx' has not been set

Additionally authorized MX records

We could not find any other records authorized in the SPF record besides the MX records stored in the DNS

Additionally authorized IPv6 addresses

How is the sender informed?

The exp mechanism acts as a return to the sender if the IP address was not authorized to send and notify them. None was found.
