7/14    Help sendmail experts. I forward email from my own domain to
        http://gmail.com. I have never had any problem until recently. The problem
        happens only when eBay sends an email to my domain (as
        member@ebay.com). I receive the mail on my domain/my machine, and
        when it tries to forward to gmail, I get the following:
         Diagnostic-Code: X-Postfix; host <DEAD>gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com<DEAD>[w.x.y.z]
         said: 550 5.7.1 Unauthenticated email is not accepted from this
         domain.
         l31si10176981rvb.6 (in reply to end of DATA command)
        What could be causing this and how do I fix it? Thanks.
        \_ anti-joe-job/spam measures, probably relying on SPF dns records. See
           http://spf.pobox.com  Mail forwarding is a known problem for SPF,
           though you may be able to fix it for just your case. -ERic

8/25    What's the best way to get a domain name that is about to expire?
        \_ It's called backordering.  It used to be fixed priced but now
           they're trying to auction them.  Still a good deal though.

7/9     is godaddy still the place for domain names? anything cheaper?
        \_ I use <DEAD>nearlyfreespeech.net<DEAD> since they're really awesome. It's worth
           paying for a decent registrar. Also, I use Sitelutions for the DNS for
           the domain, since it lets you have an enormous amount of control over
           your domain's DNS.

4/6     im considering making my Gmail account my default email for
        all my online banking stuff and domain registration and bill pay.
        Is there any anecdotal evidence of people getting their google
        account hacked?  After I do this change, Google will basically
        own me completely.

4/9     dig txt http://domain.com only returns one TXT record even though domain
        has more than one.  How do I see them all? tnx MOTD!
        \\_wow, I could not have picked a worse example.. "dig txt http://domain.com"
        actually DOES show more than one.  how come it doesn't work with
        mydomain.
        \_ Show us your zone file. You probably did something wrong.

12/9    Does anyone know of a good blogging software that can
        handle blogging entries as well as photo albums?
        Wordpress and the WP Gallery plugin is too tricky to
        configure easily. And please don't mention Facebook!

11/3    Anyone point me to a solution for OSX  mac printing to a windows domain\
based computer that requires authorising. All the syntax that I have seen in var\
ious posts does not work (e.g. smb://username:password@machine/queue ). I was wo\
ndering if I should just accept it and wait until smbpool is fixed? Connecting\
via smbclient works just fine.

9/7     Dear Linux DNS experts, how do you find out if a domain has
        published SPF records? Is there a magic command like hostname,
        nslookup, etc that does this? I'm a UNIX noob. Thanks!

8/25    A guy wants to buy my domain name using http://escrow.com. Are they
        shady or are they decent, compared to PayPal?
        \_ http://escrow.com is legit. I would not use any other escrow site.
           \_ I just used it, and it's REALLY FAST and simple to use
              unlike (#**$(# PayPal. So far so good, will let you know --op

SMTP has a security hole: any connecting client can assert any sender address. The result: your mailbox fills up with bounces to messages that you didnt send. Close the hole, and we can easily block spammers by sender domain. In this mode, an MTA uses SPF to verify the envelope sender SMTP MAIL FROM address during SMTP time. But some people pointed out that SPF can also be used to verify headers to prevent phishing. When used to verify headers, the agent could be an MTA or an MUA, and slightly different rules apply: you have to consider Sender and Resent-From as well as just the From: header. As a reminder: SPF is designed to protect the envelope sender so you dont get bounces that say You sent us a virus. Caller-ID is designed to protect the headers so eBay and PayPal can limit the damage of phishing spams that say Your credit card has expired, please re-enter it here. If you are annoyed by viruses that cause you to get bounces, you should publish SPF. If you are a big institution or a bank and are concerned about phishing, you should publish Caller-ID records as well, but first you should check with Microsoft because you may need a technology license; February 12th 2004: An eWeek article discusses SPFs interaction with the IETF standards process. While it would be really nice to see the SPF draft approved as an Experimental or Draft Standard within the next few weeks, the conservatism inherent in the IETF process may require that we follow procedure, hold a BOF, charter a Working Group, and meet a few times over the next year or two. Conservatism has served the IETF well in the past, and you certainly dont want to rush something as important as this. But the problems are urgent, and people are beginning to abandon email entirely. February 11th 2004: The spec has been published as an Internet-Draft with the version number 00. Oh, and we changed the name from Sender Permitted From to Sender Policy Framework.

Gmail is an experiment in a new kind of webmail, built on the idea that you should never have to delete mail and you should always be able to find the message you want. Use Google search to find the exact message you want, no matter when it was sent or received. Each message is grouped with all its replies and displayed as a conversation.
