Adding SPF to exim / cPanel

On a VPS is it best to SPF in the main server's exim and add the
domains that are hosted to there or is it best to do each domain / web
site individually?

Thanks,

:: Sloan

Sloan,

Each domain should have an SPF record.

If you have WHM access, you can also easily add a line to the zonefile
template to add SPF records to new domains (created after the template
is put in place, of course).

you hire brains that have knowledge, then you decide if you want to
copy that knowledge or just use it.

Sure it was.

Either you aquire the knowledge, by investing time and learning
how stuff works, or you do it the easy way and ask someone else
to do this for you.

This is, in fact, how everything else works, so why not SPF ?

Re: Adding SPF to exim / cPanel [In reply to]

Personally,

I would contact CPANEL.

They have a reasonably decent tech support team.

This list is for explaining and helping with SPF, not for supporting Cpanel.

I think your "easily" probably conveyed "lazy" and earned you the
response you got. - "The Easiest way is to hire someone."

John

Re: Adding SPF to exim / cPanel [In reply to]

That was the goal of the question. Your answer, however, was both
obviously full of sarcasm and not helpful to the question which was
fundamentally to achieve some direction to acquire said "knowledge".

I know of no one that needs sour grapes in their life. Please do not
ever speak to me again.

Good day, Sir.

Re: Adding SPF to exim / cPanel [In reply to]

No. Just looking for real and genuine help for someone with out any
knowledge of SPF. It's ok though. Several others have been super
helpful and given me fantastic direction on working with SPF and Exim.

It's actually pretty easy with a few good hints and web sites / forums.

In my next life I will stay in school past 9th grade and then I can
ask teachers for help and "knowledge". :)

Thanks,

:: Sloan

I have a short howto on adding SPF records to domains hosted on cPanel:
http://www.apolix.co.za/home/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=41&Itemid=42

If you want to do SPF checks on the incoming mail then you will most
likely need to add something to the exim ACL's that hooks into the SPF
perl script and does the checks that way.

Re: Adding SPF to exim / cPanel [In reply to]

After following the previous tutorial, you can use the following in your
ROOT_STANDARD and ROOT_STANDARDVIRTUALFTP zone templates to always add
an SPF record whenever a new domain is create:

(add this to the bottom of your zone template while logged in as root,
this is in WHM->DNS FUNCTIONS->EDIT ZONE TEMPLATES)

%domain%. IN TXT "v=spf1 a mx ip4:%ftpip% -all"

Save the template(s) and you're done.
