Errors showing up on DNS records check


Here are the facts

I have one single static IP from Cox
all domains are purchased from Godaddy

I am currently hosting 6 domains from home on my windows server 2012 with IIS8 as the web service

all domain are visible on the internet and work fine


Here's were the trouble starts

I am trying to setup an Axigen mail server from home and when I run DNS checks the following shows using MXtoolbox


1. it states I have a dmarc record missing, which I have configured in DNS below

   Host @ TXT value is:     v=DMARC1; p=none;;; fo=0; adkim=r; aspf=r; pct=100; rf=afrf; ri=86400; sp=none


below are additional error messages;

1. no spf record found and I see no drop down to select this record type

2. smtp  domain name reverse DNS does not match SMTP banner

3. dns  domain name SOA expire value out of recommended range

smtp    domain name 16.595 secounds - not good on transaction time

unable to add a PTR record, no drop down shown


an MX record does show for the domain and resolves correctly to my IP with a pref of 10

any help would  be great

Hi @kdmiller45. Welcome to GoDaddy Community!


I'm not 100% sure, but I think some of the issue you're having with your SPF record could be related to how the spaces in it are showing up. When I do a DNS query, it shows '\' characters instead of the spaces. You can see it here:


Also, in regard to your reverse DNS, you'll need to create a PTR record to set that up. However, since you're using GoDaddy nameservers, you wouldn't be able to do that. You may need to consider either setting up nameservers on your local server and using those or using another DNS provider. Sorry Man Sad


As for the rest, I'm not sure. Hoping others in the community might have additional thoughts on this.
