AOL implements SPF

Just found out from Freeside that his baby, SPF, has been implemented by AOL:

$ host -t txt aol.com
aol.com text "v=spf1 ip4:152.163.225.0/24 ip4:205.188.139.0/24
  ip4:205.188.144.0/24 ip4:205.188.156.0/24 ip4:205.188.157.0/24
  ip4:205.188.159.0/24 ip4:64.12.136.0/24 ip4:64.12.137.0/24
  ip4:64.12.138.0/24 ptr:mx.aol.com -all"

SPF is Sender Permitted From, an antispam soon-to-be-standard which essentially allows domain owners to specify the hosts from which mail can be expected to originate from that domain.

Getting AOL on board is a pretty impressive win. You've all published your SPF records, right?
