We can send and receive email using a desktop email client. I have seen it used by facebook. Some folks might think that -all will be better as it will reject emails from untrusted hosts. To check if your SPF record is propagated to the public Internet, you can use the dig utility on your Linux box like below. On Ubuntu, you need to install the bind9-dnsutils package in order to use dig command: sudo apt install bind9-dnsutils. Append the following lines at the end of the file. The first line specifies the Postfix policy agent timeout setting. The following lines will impose a restriction on incoming emails by rejecting unauthorized email and checking SPF record. Next time, when you receive an email from a domain that has an SPF record, you can see the SPF check results in the raw email header.
