    SpamArrest SPF Warning (Firefox 1.0)

    I've recently begun using SpamArrest to filter my e-mail and despite having woodyswatch.com on my "whitelist" the mail addressed from the wow-robot@woodyswatch.com is being flagged. The following is the text of the warning message:
    "Spam Arrest is now using a technology called SPF (Sender Permitted Framework)
    to determine the authenticity of emails entering our system.
    Many ISPs are now publishing SPF information, which states which mail servers
    are allowed to send mail for their domain.
    If you received this warning, but the message appears to be legitimate, the
    sender of the email should contact their ISP and determine why they are not
    allowed to send email."

    Typically I am unable to open the attached .eml messages that are flagged this way.

    Suggestions?

    Re: SpamArrest SPF Warning (Firefox 1.0)

    "Receiving" mail servers sometimes probe the sending mail servers, or the DNS records for those servers, or the server that should host the sender address, in various ways. The Lounge's servers might not always respond to such probes. It might be fastest to ask Spam Arrest to make an exception rather than to try to figure out which of many hoops they want us to jump through...
