Should this pass a SPF test?

I'm having a problem with one provider rejecting email that is forwarded
through our mailserver system to the end user's local ISP email system.
The headers are as follows, with only the email addresses destroyed to
as not to invite spam.

Note that webervations.com (if I understand the subnets properly) seems
to have a proper SPF record. It passed our checks. Also note that I am
running Amavisd-new as a frontend in order to do some spam filtering
before forwarding. I think this is the problem, but want to verify that
in fact this should pass SPF checks. I'm suspecting that the parasun.com
is not looking far enough back in the headers, therefore the failure.
Or, am I all wet and this should in fact not pass?

Note that my client's domain name (shown as gooddomainname.com below)
does not have a SPF record, therefore is not a factor in record checking.

Re: Should this pass a SPF test? [In reply to]

simply put NO

if the mail is forwarded (sent by you) to the receiver
it cannot possibly pass the original senders spf policy (as he did not list your ip in his policy

this is why a receiver of forwarded mail needs to whitelist those ips that forward email to him from all spf checks.
(if the receivers isp offers him no method of doing this, then he needs to pick a better isp or consider getting the forwarder to use SRS capable software, or just use pop3 instead of forwarding)

(unless as often stated the forwarder changes the address the mail comes from to be one of his own (and thus within his own spf policy) with a method such as SRS)
