Email routing and spf permerror


I’m using Email routing and I notice a spam-like mail coming to my inbox.
When I check in Cloudflare->email routing activity logs the email was marked with SPF status of permerror.

What I wanted to ask is, if there is a way to mark/block when an email get permerror status. So it is easy to spot that it maybe Spam.
Or… is there some specific action I need to take with my DNS that I missed when setting up Email routing? Like add a SPF record or similar…

Thank you in advance!

Hello there,

This error can be due to the following:

  • multiple SPF records are found on one domain
  • the SPF record is syntactically incorrect
  • or could be other reasons as well.
    Meaning to say: records could not be correctly interpreted.

Fix the SPF record that’s existing.

Thanks for the tips.
I clean up an old SPF.
Added also a DMARC
v=DMARC1; p=quarantine; rua=mailto:xxx
Hopefully will help.

May I suggest you to check the link for the best results?
