Invalid SPF Syntax on TXT Record

I am attaching a screenshot of an invalid Syntax SPF record error we’re seeing involving a TXT record provided by our client. The TXT record should be “v=spf1 –all”, but it is producing random characters instead of the dash in MXToolbox.

Correct, this is from MX Toolbox, as I mentioned. Here’s how the record appears in Cloudflare:

It does look like there are garbage characters in there. To me, it looks like you used an emdash instead of an endash (minus sign). Backspace over the end and then retype -all using the minus sign for the dash. It’s even possible you did a double-minus, and your device autocorrected it to a long dash.


This took care of it! Thx
