Problems with spoof, SPF
Posted by Pacific Host on 04 December 2011 03:14 PM

Notice: PacificHost automatically creates an SPF record for all shared and reseller customers.

If you are getting tons of spam return-messages (like Failure Notification or Mailer Daemon)...THIS IS SPOOF

Partial solution: Enable Default Address and set every catchall to :fail: no such address here. This will stop you from getting the bounce-backs, but the real problem is not solved.
Full solution: You need to create an SPF record. An SPF record is an entry added to the DNS zones for a domain. This record verifies that a user has permission to send mail from that domain. This is used to prevent spoofing for your domain. You may contact us to be sure you have a working SPF record.
