Subject: [spf-discuss] Survey: When does SPF cause legitimate email to
Looking through the SPF-Help RT reports, it looks like the roaming
user problem is actually roaming user problem is the most frequent,
but I haven't studied the reports closely enough to be sure.
The bulk of these are actually registrar/DNS provider/domain host published
record on behalf of the domain owner without talking to them and put -all at
the end. Mydomain.com's decision to do this has had a very big impact on
the number of complaints we get.
It requires mental telepathy for a provider to publish a complete/correct
SPF record for their customers without actually communicating with them and
findout out how they send mail.
The biggest category that I've seen that would have to go into "Other" is
misconfigured/buggy SPF checking. It's also the most frustrating because
about all I can say is that you mail should have been accepted. IIRC, this
is usually a matter of receivers not realizing that they are rejecting
results other than Fail or doing post SMTP checking and checking the wrong
Forwarding comes up, but it is rare.
