Since you unfortunately decided to prolong the discussion about this
subject, what is your problem with SPF?

It does exactly what it was designed to do: (ab)use existing DNS
infrastructure to designate hosts allowed to send mail on behalf of a

If everyone would use it and domain registries stop to accept bogus
registrations we could sue the spammers and/or block their domains.
