OK, so before I put it back, can someone help me with this SPF thing?
This is the string that I got from the wizard:

v=spf1 a mx ptr include:comcast.net ~all

My smarthost is the host identified by the A record, but I might
conceivably switch the smarthost to comcast's server or to the host
that serves as my MX server (incoming mail server).  So that looks
right to me... any thoughts?

Or is there some reason at linuxmafia.com why conspire email is taking
such a long time to get to me?
