Setting up SPF
SPF records are TXT records placed into a domain's DNS settings. SPF (Sender Policy Framework) is a way to restrict which mail servers are allowed to send email for your domain name.

Create a TXT record for the outgoing sending domain with the following details:

"v=spf1 a:6205.submission.antispamcloud.com a:release.antispamcloud.com -all"

If you already have an existing SPF, simply add a:6205.submission.antispamcloud.com a:release.antispamcloud.com to your existing record.

Change the MX records the Mail Exchanger in cPanel is set to Local Mail Exchanger.
