Whatever scheme someone thinks up will have to be adopted by enough domains before it starts to be effective. That doesn't mean it's not a good idea. Just that it's going to take a while so be ready to stick with the project. :)

Recently my domain has been getting bounce messages to non-existant accounts. The reason is that spam is currently being sent with forged From addresses that are just some random name @ mydomain.

I have had SPF setup in my DNS for a while now. I like it because it's pretty simple to setup. I don't have any issues where I try to send from different ISPs when I'm not road, etc.

I have learned that many domains do not use SPF. AOL, Gmail, Hotmail are some that do but many others don't. I've been emailing the whois contacts for each domain that bounces spam to me to tell them about SPF.

(Side note if your WHOIS contact information doesn't work I think you should lose your domain.)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
