SPF Neutral instead of Pass when SPF is configured properly

By Blog

Lately, we have been having an issue where an email is marked as SPF Neutral instead of getting a good old PASS from GSUITE when an email has been sent through the website’s contact form.

We recently had a customer who had a couple of websites that were developed by someone else, and these were hosted on some server space. We were in discussions about taking on their sites & hosting, getting their sites a bit more visually appealing and adding some social media widgets to the site.

seo – what exactly is it?

By Blog

Too much tech speak? Let me put it this way. The last time you wanted to look up a hair dresser in Wagga, which of the following did you do?

1) Pull out the phone book (that was currently being used to sit your monitor on so it didn’t crick your neck), blow the excess dust of it, look up the index for H, find the page and ring the hairdresser with the biggest ad on that page (who would have paid handsomely for that ad)


2) Whip out your phone, and google it?
