Thanks for the discussion so far. My
original intend to do a post asking about SPF was to get a general feeling
about what the community thinks. It seems to me, that there is still a
lot of mistrust considering the efficency around. To be honest I was really
surprised reading comments sounding like "does not solve spam problem",
"watch out postmasters implementing it wrong" and so on. Come
on guys. I'm certainly not the one implementing it and then fully discarding
mails by the means of SPF.
When I wrote my origial post there was
a customer getting many bounces because of his domain being used to forge.
Sure, SPF does not prevent the misuse of my customer's domain, but it helps
in by other means. Aren't AOL, GMX, Yahoo, Web.de and other freemailers
checking for it and giving their Webmail user a hint, when the mail was
sent over a mailserver other than stated via SPF entry? Imho, preety useful
for banks fighting phishing mails.
Ah before I forget: just because it
is not the "EierlegendeWollMilchSau", don't tell it's broken.
