Council Resolution/11

#11: SPF checking of the HELO identity shall be explicitly allowed

The SPFv1 specification shall allow SPF checking on HELO. If the HELO hostname is an FQDN, and if that hostname has an SPF record, a receiver MAY perform an SPF HELO check.

Rationale: It has been that way ever since Hector Santos convinced the SPF project of doing it that way, and if the SPFv1 specification is to document existing practice, then it should include that.

(Proposed on 2004-12-04 by Meng Weng Wong, passed unanimously.)
