How do you figure that?

The failure mode in this case is if somebody arranges "dumb" mail
forwarding that doesn't do envelope rewriting, and also applies a SPF
filter on their incoming mail. The problem is quite clearly of the
recipient's making rather than any fault of the sender's.

When I told the people of Northern Ireland that I was an atheist, a woman in
the audience stood up and said, 'Yes, but is it the God of the Catholics or the
God of the Protestants in whom you don't believe?
