I just set up SPF, and this may be a FAQ, but I searched the archive,
and didn't find any info about this issue, so here goes:
I run my own mail server (sendmail), and have set up SPF for it:
reedtz.com. IN TXT "v=spf1 ip4:22.214.171.124 -all"
All MUAs/webmail on my network connect to smtp.reedtz.com
(126.96.36.199) and all mail goes out that way.
However, when using spfmilter, I get a 'fail' status when I send myself
a test message. The problem appears to be that spfmilter sees the
Received: line containing my SMTP connection from my MUA (188.8.131.52)
to my outbound relay (184.108.40.206) as the 'client IP' (or originating
What should I do? I'd really rather not have to maintain SPF records for
all MUAs. Or is this simply how it works?
I could of course put my entire /28 in the SPF record, but I'd really
like to find out how to designate my outbound server as the only allowed
server, without getting rejected.
Any help is appreciated.
