#1113 Issue closed: Can't subscribe to mailing list due to broken SPF record

Hi everyone,
I tried subscribing to the rear-devel mailing list today, but I can't receive any emails from rear-devel-bounces@lists.relax-and-recover.org due to a broken SPF record (the SPF basically tells me that is NOT allowed to send mail for lists.relax-and-recover.org. So it gets blocked by my employers mailgateway)

% dig txt lists.relax-and-recover.org
lists.relax-and-recover.org. 80163 IN TXT "v=spf1 mx -all"

..but "lists.relax-and-recover.org" does not have a MX record specified. This could be fixed by adding an 'a' to the SPF record, or an MX record for lists.relax-and-recover.org

@dagwieers Hey Dag - does the above ring a bell with you?

Perhaps @danboid has the same problem, cf.

I seem to be having trouble subscribing to your mailing list

This should now be fixed !

The best option for me was to update the TXT field to include all the MX records of the service provider: "v=spf1 include:_spf.3ti.be -all"

Let me know if you have any issues (but wait 24h to report them, just in case ;-))

Yep, I can now subscribe to the list
