SPF error, ‘The number of lookups on your SPF record exceed the allowed limit of 10

Hello, I’m getting an SPF error, ‘The number of lookups on your SPF record exceed the allowed limit of 10. This will result in emails failing SPF authentication. Review record.’

I’ve looked at all the documentation and checked all the forums but nowhere is actually telling me how to fix this issue. This error appeared today after adding the DMARC record. How do I actually fix this? And what happens if this doesn’t get fixed?

Thank you for your help

Your SPF will always fail when it exceeds 10 lookups. You need to reduce the number of DNS queries required by your SPF record.

Have you examined your record with the dmarcian SPF surveyor?
