SPF rules for domains which dont provide them.

    Hello To All,

    I have a little problem, which I hope somebody can shed some light on. I am new to this whole SPF concept, so please correct me if I am incorrect.

    I have a client who has an email address setup on my server, which forwards to another email address on another network (which I dont control).

    He is complaining that it takes over an hour for any email to get to him. When I look in the mail queue I can see the messages that he is waiting for in the queue. But they have this line added to them:

    Received-SPF: none (mydomain.com: domain at anotherdomain.com does not designate permitted sender hosts) .

    Now I am going to assume, that this is what is causing the delay. Can anybody confirm this?

    Also after reading through some docs on SPF I know that you can setup rules for domains which do not provide an SPF record, which again I am assuming is the problem (Received-SPF: none).

    What do I need to add there to allow emails to be forwarded to that domain?

    Thanks in advance.
