    SPF Record Evaluation

    itagsupport

      Hi

      with MEG7, we noticed a strange behaviour when the system is evaluating the SPF record of senders.

       

      We have incoming mails being dropped with the following error:

       

      ----snip----

      Application=smtp, Event='Sender Policy Framework (SPF) triggered', status='Reject and close the connection', From=<[sender]@[domainname].com>, source=[host].[domainname].com([ip.address]), msgid=xxxxx, convid=xxxxx

      SPF Record:

        [domainname].com           20      IN      TXT     "v=spf1 include:spf.[domainname].com ?all"

      ----snip----

       

       

      According to what we saw in the SPF RFCs, a record with "?all" should be evaluated as "neutral" and always be accepted.

       

      Something we missunderstood?

       

      Thanks for any info. (We turned off SPF checking for the time being.......)

      Regards

      Roman
