[Pdns-users] dig doesn't work after adding SPF record

Thank you very much. That was it. : )
The double quotes have been missed.

But something is strange.
If I use TXT records without double quotes than they are automatically set
by pdns and if I set the double quotes by myself, then work everything too.
But if I use SPF records, I MUST set the double quotes by myself, so that
everything is working.
I think this is really impractical.
Would be great if SPF records have the same mechanism with the double quotes
like TXT records.
