Poor Mail Deliverability; Multiple SPF Record Error

Hi,

I've been seeing pretty poor mail deliverability even on personal emails, and was wondering if anyone could offer me a hand w/ my SPF record.  I ran a SPF record test on my domain https://tradablepatterns.com using MXtoolbox

 

 

and am getting the error as seen in the screenshot below:

Considering that I'm using a dedicated Godaddy server package, Outlook365 and 2 mail sending services - Mailchimp (advised to add to SPF: servers.mcsv.net) and Campayn (advised to add to SPF: email.campayn.com), do you see anything wrong w/ my following SPF records?

 

v=spf1 include:secureserver.net -all

v=spf1 include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:servers.mcsv.net include:email.campayn.com ?all

 

I ran a similar SPF test at https://www.kitterman.com/spf/validate.html?, and am also seeing an error involving multiple SPF records as displayed in the following screenshot.

If I were to combine the 2 SPF records into 1, should it read as the following?

 

v=spf1 include:secureserver.net include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:servers.mcsv.net include:email.campayn.com ?all

 

 

Cheers,

Darren

Ok, I think I fixed the issue w/ the help of Godaddy staff...I removed the 1st SPF record as the secureserver.net apparently is only used for webmail, so when I now run the SPF record test using the same domain, the SPF checks out fine!

 

When I run the MXtoolbox test now on my domain https://tradablepatterns.com, I get the 3 remaining errors as seen in the following screenshot.  How can I eliminate these errors?

Actually, turns out I needed the secureserver.net...

My following updated SPF:

v=spf1 a mx include:secureserver.net include:spf.protection.outlook.com include:servers.mcsv.net include:email.campayn.com ?all

tests fine with:
