Wayne's list is very helpful, but it would be nice if there was a domain we

as an example of good records.

    at least a year now. If you want to do HELO checking, I highly
    recommend checking for the SPF records. They are far more widely
    published than CSV or DMP records.

The HELO domains that I found with CSV records were:
