Re: [Alex] SPF and Email Profiles In reply to
OK let me put it this way:

(1) GMail user sets up a profile as alex at gossamer-threads.com

(2) GMail user sets up a profile with domain.tld on the same server as Gossamer Mail and not a Gmail domain (in fact some other non gmail domain not belonging to user but on the same server and with a SPF record published).

With the above two cases, what i am trying to highlight is that the process of profile creation should have a validation built-in before the profile can be used by the gmail user. Till it's validated, it should be *Non Useable* A Validation mail goes to the profile email address and unless verified that email address is unavailable for use. So that at least alex at gossamer-threads.com does not receive bounce messages for mails not sent by Alex.

Currently i do not allow yahoo/hotmail/aol etc as being used in email profiles. It's a good feature when a user has multiple POP accounts on domains owned by Gmail user but not when it can be abused by setting up email addresses as above.
