Subdomain SPF records do not follow include

My domain foo.com uses Cloudflare Email routing and has SPF record including CF SPF records. My subdomain bar.foo.com also uses CF Email routing and includes SPF record for foo.com. But Email routing config validator pane fails to follow the includes and complains bar.foo.com’s SPF record is misconfigured.

Hi @proteus1

It seems that your spf records for the subdomains are using/looking at subdomains that are not created in your DNS dashboard. Try and create either A record or CNAME record for the subdomains you mention in your spf record.
