Kudos

I imagine that most of the email you get is because of problems and that
people rarely go to the effort of taking the time to commend great service.

I’m simply writing to tell you that your service has been great since
you’ve completed your updates to the systems. I can only describe it as
responsive, smooth, reliable and a great value.

In particular the addition of spamassassin has been a boon. I am now
manage more than 90% of my spam filtering on eskimo before email even
reaches my home workstation. I don’t believe a single spam has actually
made it to my in box on my home system so far this year.

Thank you for this wonderful service!

SPF Policy Failures Affecting Incoming Mail

     I had a customer complain about being unable to receive e-mail from a particular site.  Upon examining the logs, I saw errors from our spf policy checker.  This is a perl script that looks up a domain and checks the spf records to be sure that the server attempting to deliver e-mail for that domain is a legitimate server for that domain.  It was failing even though the records looked legitimate and the server was in the allowed list.

     I Googled the error and found a note from the author saying it was caused by a change in systemd resolver but that he had fixed it in the spf script and the new fixed version was available from cpan.  I installed the version on span and so far the only spf rejections I’ve seen are legitimate so I believe this problem is fixed.
