No, you cannot do that.  Also you should not use the 'mx mechanism'
unless you really know what you are doing.  It is almost always a bad
idea, not least because it wastes bandwidth.

It might be better to ask your question at <spf-help at listbox.com>, but
PLEASE use real domain names in future when you ask your questions, it
is difficult to answer this kind of question without that information.
