I secure my outbound e-mail with SPF. One of the ports maintainers
([EMAIL PROTECTED]) also secures his INBOUND e-mail with SPF.
I tried to e-mail garga about a minor doc-bug, and got a bounce, since his
mailserver didn't recognize mx2.freebsd.org as a valid MX for
My solution to the problem was a workaround (screw being nice, open a
send-pr). However, the fact that this person is protecting his inbox in
the same way as I am presents a problem: he's listed as a contact for
these ports, and isn't reachable via it (but ironically WOULD be if I had
no spf record).
In the mean, I recognize that FreeBSD is a volunteer organization, but can
there be some kind of either:
a) policy requirement that people configure allow rules for the freeBSD
b) modification to the forwarder so it re-sends instead of forwarding?
I'd offer to help but my postfix foo isn't what it needs to be.
As technical types, coders, porters, etc, I feel we're beyond the level of
"end user" for whom this would be "too complicated".
