Submission + - Does SPF really work?

Intelopment writes: "My Domain name has recently been used a lot as the REPLY field by some inconsiderate spammer and my ISP has suggested that I consider using the Open SPF service ( as a way to stop spammers from using my domain name for their REPLY field. From what I can tell it requires the receiving mail server to actually participate in the SPF service, which is where I get my doubts. Does anyone have any experience with this service? Does it work? Are many ISPs using openSFP?"

It might help to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, but I pay Eur 204.49 (~ US 260.71) per month for 2048/256 here in Ireland, where our government keep pitching us as the e-hub of Europe. There are a handful of broadband (dsl & wireless.. no cable) available to me, but for an uncapped reasonable speed, that's the best I can do!
