I do see lines like these (domain and IP fiddled with to protect the
innocent) in /var/log/exim4/mainlog :

2010-08-11 19:32:12 H=stoner.mydomain.no [] Warning: Unexpected error in SPF check.

Hm... a google search gave me this one:

The exim config fragment says that this is caused by a missing
libmail-spf-query-perl but I've installed it today.

Hm... from 22:26 I've started seeing messages like these
    490:2010-08-11 22:25:56 H=(mail2world.com) [] F=<xduesue at mail2world.com> rejected RCPT <87irfdr8su.fsf at mydomain.no>: SPF check failed.

So I guess that SPF is now working.  Only not for my own domain.

Which means that there is something wrong with my DNS SPF records...?
