Topic: Is DPF and DKIM important?

I am testing using iRedOS and have disable SPF and DKIM when installation. I have tested using http://www.nospamtoday.com/emailsecurity/ and http://www.gfi.com/emailsecuritytest/ for spam and viruses. So, can I safely disable SPF and DKIM?

It's SAFE to disable both. But we suggest you read documents to learn what they are and what they used for.

If I want to enable it, how do I do so?

According to the tutorial, I need add this to my DNS. My local company is using Microsoft Server 2000 as my DNS server, how do I do it?

For SPF
Go here
http://www.openspf.org/FAQ/Manage_my_own
Follow the wizard, at the end it will spit out plain text, this is what you will give to your DNS provider.
As it varies depending on the type of DNS server they are running, you will want to contact them about adding the text that the wizard spit out for you to your "TXT" record with them.

As for DKIM, I am just learning this stuff so I am not sure about that one yet.
