Hi,

Ok, this isn't really related to SPF.

What you are asking is just to be able to validate the profile so a user can't enter in a bogus email address. We'll look at this in some more detail and see what's involved in adding it in.

SPF could help though, as if the mail server running Gossamer Mail was SPF enabled, it would reject emails sent via Gossamer Mail from users with bad profiles though. i.e. setup a profile of devnull@gossamer-threads.com and if your mail server is configured properly, when Gossamer Mail tries to send a message with an envelope header @gossamer-threads.com, your mail server should reject it.

Our experience has been SPF is not widely deployed. Many people publish SPF records, but few people actually check them.

Cheers,

Alex
