AOL implements SPF

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

$ host -t txt text "v=spf1 ip4: ip4:
  ip4: ip4: ip4:
  ip4: ip4: ip4:
  ip4: -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?
