Hello Joel :)
You snipped out what Stephen said?
Stephen said that: "This is because SPF is fundamentally broken"
I say that: SPF is not broken.

To which ac replied:
clearly so. it is bouncing incoming from it's own forwarder...
I was merely explaining that the flag forces the fail ,this is the
prerogative of the domain owner.
It is with the "-" flag in the text record of the zone that spf is forced.
For example, were I to send email to the same address as Russel, it
will not fail... (main.me has a "~" )
- I was just explaining why SPF is not broken :)
