[Slackbuilds-users] spf breaks submission form email validation

my mailserver rejects whatever valid email check the submission form does.

It appears that the test message comes FROM the same adress that it is TO. Since I am using spf, the mail is rejected because I publish an spf record that says only my machines may send mail from my domain.

here's what I get in the log
Received-SPF: fail (pretender.frop .net: SPF record at frop.net does not designate as permitted sender)

It seems like the valid email checker should use a from address other than the destination address.

I was able to submit my slackbuild under another address.
