    Exclamation Creating a SPF record ?

    Hi,

    I am trying to add an SPF record to my DNS zone editor on bluehost.

    I am being told to add this line " v=spf1 a ip4:199.204.23.90 include:_spf.google.com include:sm2.myactualdomain.com ~all "

    However when I do I get the error message which reads: Invalid IPv4 address

    Any ideas on how to fix this and add that line as an SPF record? I followed this guide http://www.mail-tester.com/spf/bluehost but still now working for me.


    Thanks.

    It looks like it may be choking on the google SPF domain.

    Contact bluehost support about the issue.
