bah. don't listen to that crap. SPF if garbage. http://homepages.tesco.net/J.deBoynePollard/FGA/smtp-spf-is-harmful.html > 2.

Your smtp greeting should have your machine's FQDN in it. For instance, my server's FQDN is tranquility.scriptkitchen.com and if you connect to my smtp server you'll see that my FQDN is in my SMTP greeting. Just put your FQDN into your SMTP greeting and voila. -Jeremy -- Jeremy Kitchen ++ [EMAIL PROTECTED] In the beginning was The Word and The Word was Content-type: text/plain -- The Word of Bob.
