I'll ask him about it.

Jonas, forgive me, but I'm going to have to stop reading the rest of this email at
this point because I simply MUST be missing
If I don't allow email to come into my network with forged FROM headers(or even forged

how would that NOT prevent the spam from reaching my user's inboxes??
Help me out with your logic there.
