Uh oh ... should have read your email more carefully. I see you are
querying the SPF.

Dnsstuff.com may be able to shed some light.

Sorry Grant.

I'm having a weird error show up in logs for a domain that I'm not quite

sure what is causing the problem.  I am getting the following error in=20
logs when milter-spiff is trying to do an SPF check.

May 13 10:19:18 <host> sm-mta[941]: <msgid>: Milter: to=3D<sender>,=20
reject=3D451 4.4.3 sender <recipient> via <connecting IP> SPF result=20
TempError: DNS request refused

Milter-spiff is working just fine for 98% (+) other things just like it=20
should be.

What I don't understand is what is meant by "DNS request refused".  I=20
can manually do an "nslookup -query=3Dtxt <sending_domain.tld>" and get=20
the expected result with out a problem.

Any help that any one can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Grant. . . .
