I'm forwarding one selected message from another list (which had a
thread that turned into discussion on SPF). It would be beneficial
if there was an answer about this and list of SRS implimentations
(as well as SES) in the same way there is a list of SPF libraries
[Note: I removed name of the poster because there are folks on
SPAM-L that object to the list messages being publicly archived
without their permission]

10 years ago similar claims were being made about the necessity to
keep open relays and that closing them was an impossible task -
they're quite rare now, as same-envelope forwarding will be in the
What's the current status of the SRS efforts? Are any of the big sites
signed up to do it?
It seems like a good idea to me, but then I found the FAQ at:
But don't worry, we're working on providing SRS
patches for the four major opensource MTAs, so that
when you upgrade to an SPF-aware version, this
problem will be solved also.
This has been going on long enough that I'd expect code to be available by
now, but maybe my clock is off.
The SRS FAQ at http://www.openspf.org/SRS gets pretty complicated.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
