Why would you need to modify the SPF record?
There are many legitimate reasons for modifying your SPF record. One of the biggest reasons would be the fact that you are not using the provided mail servers to send mail. This is actually a common scenario and is easy handled by modifying the SPF record. Here is a list of reasons you would to modify the SPF record:
  1. Using your own mail servers. Now this should not be a problem with the default record as it handles any mx record you have.

  2. A third party service is sending emails on your behalf.

  3. You are sending mails from a server not covered by your SPF record.
