The problem is that some domains that I host on my mail server I want a
harsher protection than others. In this particular case, a certain set
of recipients have received bombardments of email from a set of IP's and
they complain about two or three hundred emails in a day coming into
their mail box. They would suffer the consequences of an SPF protected
mail server (innocent senders are blocked because they don't use SPF and
mail bounces) because they would see less spam, whereas other clients
want to see all email and will not tolerate too many bounces from their

I want to selectively use SPF for some domains and not others for the
purposes of the functionality that SPF offers. I want to tune this
depending on the client domain.
