Thanks!! would you set up SPF with the domainname (domain.com) or the MX hostname (mail.domain.com) and any other back up hosts??? Would this information be placed with the ISP who manages our DNS?

We are using Suse 9.0 Professional. I am getting email that is claiming to be from my domain and the Posfix logs confirm it is from an outside IP.

I would suggest to use SPF (http://spf.pobox.com). This way you can restrict the IP's that are allowed to send mails that end with your domain.
