I understand the purpose of a SPF record is to publish a list of outgoing mail servers for a domain. The DNS for my domain's A (Host) record and MX records do not match each other nor will it match the outgoing mail server specified in the SPF record. Will this create any issues or are there any considerations I may have to include to get this set up correctly?

Thanks

No. The receiving end only compares the IP the mail was received from with the hosts found in the SPF record. The SPF record can containg anything and doesn't have to be related to your IP range.

Thanks, I did check it...way before I posted here. I was just looking for advice from a real person who might be able to provide me more of explanation then an automated tool could. I got my record implemented and so far so good.
