    SPF help

    I send email from my server with the "From" being a gmail account. I have this record in my DNS v=spf1 a mx ~all

    It comes out as Neutral though. Any advice?

    More info please.

    Is your server on the same domain as the domain of that DNS record? Is that the mail server or some other server? What's the To address? Which server handles the receiving mail for that address? etc.

    I see that you didn't set up any mail server yourself but rely on some default. Setting up SPF requires some decent experience with mail servers and the scope of that is way too large for a forum post. In your case, I recommend removing the SPF entry. Your current line (particularly the ~all part) is setting it to Neutral or SoftFail responses which is practically useless.
