How Do You Configure Multiple SPF records?

I have 3 SPF1 records at “TXT” type records.
I was advised that “multiple” records are not allowed (my emails are getting bounced from a client when I email him because of this).

my records:
TXT


v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
1 hr
DNS only

TXT davelandry.com v=spf1 ip4…?all
Auto
DNS only

TXT


v=spf1 mx include:infusionmail.com -all
Auto

You do it very much like your infusionmail include:

Your first SPF is for example.com, and in that one, put an include: _spf1.example.com
Now you can create an SPF record for _spf1
and so on to chain more together

I’m still lost. I understand what you mean by “chaining,” but not sure how to do it. When I click on each of the three TXT records, I get the content as:
v=spf1 ip4:66.96.128.0/18 ?all
v=spf1 mx include:infusionmail.com -all
v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all
How do I chain these to avoid the multiple SPF entries.
Thanks in advance!

In this case you can use a single record that looks like this (roughly optimized for efficiency in processing by the recipient).

v=spf1 ip4:66.96.128.0/18 mx include:infusionmail.com include:spf.protection.outlook.com -all

Each item is processed sequentially, the all term typically should be at the end. You can add and remove the other items as needed to match your needs.
