    I have a client wich cannot send mail to a particular email address ([email protected])
    The error is like this:

    Dec 14 15:59:29 web1 postfix/smtp[15910]: 80D3B16B809F: to=<[email protected]>, relay=mail.destination.tld[xx.xx.xx.170]:25, delay=1993, delays=1973/0.01/1.2/19, dsn=4.0.0, status=deferred (host mail.destination.tld[xx.xx.xx.170] said: 451 SPF lookup failure (#4.3.0) (in reply to MAIL FROM command))

    the senders domain file looks like this:

    $TTL 86400
    @ IN SOA admin.sender.tld. (
    2007121402 ; serial, todays date + todays serial #
    28800 ; refresh, seconds
    7200 ; retry, seconds
    604800 ; expire, seconds
    86400 ) ; minimum, seconds
    NS ; Inet Address of name server 1
    NS ; Inet Address of name server 2

    mx MX 10 mail.sender.tld.

    sender.tld. A
    www A
    ftp A
    mail A

    pop3 CNAME mail.sender.tld.
    smtp CNAME mail.sender.tld.

    sender.tld. TXT "v=spf1 a mx ptr ~all"

    ;;;; MAKE MANUAL ENTRIES BELOW THIS LINE! ;;;; is ns1 is ns2 is the machine on wich clients are (ispconfig)
    all other mail seems to work fine (only this email destination is with problem)

    i forgot to mention:
    [[email protected] named]# [[email protected] named]# host -t txt destination.tld destination.tld descriptive text "v=spf1 a mx ~all"
    [[email protected] named]# host -t txt mail.destination.tld mail.destination.tld descriptive text "v=spf1 a -all"
    [[email protected] named]# host -t txt sender.tld sender.tld descriptive text "v=spf1 a mx ptr ~all"

    Thank you in advance

    Did you send from one of the hosts specified in this SPF record?

    yes of course, this is the sender. (client on ispconfig).
    he has an email account on that domain.
    and that's his SPF settings.
    i believe that the ispconfig's default seting for all clients.

    Can you post the real domain name you sent from so that I can check?

    I've checked that domain, and everything seems to be fine. I guess it's a misconfiguration on the remote mailserver then...
