Gmail and hotmail are blocking my emails

I see others have reported this occurrence, but I don't see any solution that I can apply.  Below is the message I receive when I send an email to a gmail address.

Thank you

Hello, 

Can you go ahead and try once more? I have updated the TXT SPF record for your domain which should allow it to begin working properly.

@elyzabethv​ Hi!  How do I update my TXT SPF record to enable email authentication?  I'm having the same issue.  Thanks!

Hello, 

If you go in to edit your DNS from the Domains tab of your Homestead account, replace the current TXT record with v=spf1 ip4:66.96.128.0/18 -all

@elyzabethv​ Hi Elyzabeth,

I'll make the change to my DNS, thank you!  Do I presume correctly I need to do the same for each of my domains, then?  Might some already have this new TXT record?

Thanks again!

Hello, 

Yes, this would be the setting for any domain you need to use email for.
