If you mean by using +trace in dig, yes. Not a single response from a
query like 'dig -t txt +trace +all' returns anything longer than 512
bytes (I'm looking at the 'rcvd:' reported by dig), nor is the tc flag
set on any returned intermediate (or dig isn't reporting it).

I do realize, I wanted to see what you were querying to see if could
reproduce it with dig.
I had 8 messages rejected in the last 8 hours because of this from
various other domains. This seems quite serious to me, am I the only
one seeing this? I never saw this with milter-spiff 0.13.
I am using milter-spiff 0.14 and libmitler 1.66 that I downloaded on
