Hi.

Another possibility of misuse /abuse of this feature in it's present form:

cosnider that one user (gossamer mail domain1) knows that there are five domains on which the service is running. he/she also knows the email address of few other gossamer mail domain users. He/she creates a profile with email address of other user on same or other Gossamer mail domain and the abuse kicks off...

with spf record published, everything would look so genuine at the recepient's end but could land the admin's mail server into problems. Now that gossamer mail 3.0 is also in planning, this needs to be ironed out. There are other issues as well but more on this when GT formally calls for feature requests for the same. (Gossamer mail 3)

Thanks

Thanks
