SPF's big failing (and it's otherwise a bloody brilliant idea) is that
it breaks forwarding unless the rules are so elastic as to be almost
useless. Another great idea broken on the rocks of reality.
Scott said "good luck" with convincing someone to stop using it - but
after I explained the problem to my mail hosting provider, they did in
fact fix it. Once explained, anyone competent who is responsible for
real-world email service can see the problem.
