Noticed a drought in posts to the mail list today after enabling Sender
Policy Framework on my mail server.  Research revealed that
lists.sourceforge.net posts the following SPF record:

lists.sourceforge.net   text = "v=spf1 mx -all"

With the two MX defined as:

mail.sourceforge.net			internet address =
externalmx-1.sourceforge.net		internet address =

Yet, the list traffic is actually originating from:


Which obviously returns an SPF "fail" result to any mail servers so

Could the list owner please forward this info to Sourceforge folks who can
make the necessary adjustments to their DNS SPF record?  Thanks!
