My current SPF record is as below
Host Value TTL myexampledomain.com "v=spf1 redirect=_spf.mailhostbox.com" 1 Day
I am using 2 free email offered by the hosting provider. Now I have got a VPS where I have created email server. The thing is I want to create new email addresses for my domain and add a proper SPF and DKIM record.
I tried to use include:myexampledomain.com mx a in the SPF record, but then everything stopped working, even the 2 free emails.
Is it right to use include as well as redirect in same SPF record?
Or would like to know what should be the right way to do this? I do not want my email should land up in spam / junk mails. Also, if this is impossible is it possible to use Gmail to Send Email as email@example.com?
I am quite confused, read many articles but was not able to get the answer.
Other settings are as below
Priority Host MX Entry TTL 100 myexampledomain.com. us2.mx3.mailhostbox.com. 1 day 100 myexampledomain.com. us2.mx1.mailhostbox.com. 1 day 100 myexampledomain.com. us2.mx2.mailhostbox.com. 1 day
Alias Host Canonical Host TTL webmail.myexampledomain.com. us2.webmail.mailhostbox.com. 1 day smtp.myexampledomain.com. us2.smtp.mailhostbox.com. 1 day imap.myexampledomain.com. us2.imap.mailhostbox.com. 1 day pop.myexampledomain.com. us2.pop.mailhostbox.com. 1 day

redirect unless you are redirecting to records for a domain that is also under your control. If a third party asks you to do this, beat them over the head with a copy of the RFC; they should generally be asking you to
