It looks there is a problem with SPF.
209.132.177.92 (mx1-phx.redhat.com) is not allowed to send mails from wsisiz.edu.pl domain (which is true) and a message is bounced by a destination email server (where mails from @fedoraproject.org are redirected). Probably it's not possible to receive any email sent from a domain with SPF enabled.

Is there a way to make it work?

I'm not a SPF specialist, but I don't have problems with mails redirected from @users.sf.net.

mail forwarding is the primary achilles heel of SPF.  There's nothing
fedoraproject.org can do about the SPF records that your domain has
published.  And fedoraproject.org does not currently implement an SPF-
forwarding-enabled service, as it's really quite painful to do.

It's due to my provider restriction. Fedora's mail server looks for them like a spamer trying to send an email from a domain which defines (by SPF) though which smtp servers it can be sent.

Perhaps your domain can not specify "-all" (hard fail messages
originating from elsewhere), and instead specify "~all" (this
message didn't come from one of our mail servers, perhaps it needs
additional spam scrutiny).

It's a quite big mail provider and they fight hard with spam. Probably it won't be an option to they also due to performance issues.

Does anybody know how SourceForge deal with that? I receive mail sent via @users.sf.net alias without any problem.
