This is a topic more appropriate to spf-help. If necessary, please continue
the conversation there...
The wizard looks at your MX records and also the reverse DNS (PTR record for
the IP addresses of your MX receivers):
mail.DWYER.COM. --> A 126.96.36.199 --> PTR exs.dwyer.com.
mail1.stickdog.COM. --> A 188.8.131.52 --> PTR relay.cosmoweb.net.
Nothing unusual going on here. Just the common case where forward and
reverse DNS don't match.
