Can someone please explain what :

'Recipient blacklisted by the SPF test (sender forged per policy of "river-island.com", SPF result: Fail).' means?

HELO/EHLO Domain: (not available)
Related IP Address: 195.245.230.83
Sender:
Recipient(s):
*

It seems to pass the SPF test. I'm wondering if the issue is either a bug, or something to do with the fact our own mail server (which does not use SPF records) is NATed to an Internet visible address?

We're running 4.2 registered.

The SPF record of this domain is "v=spf1 ip4:84.45.19.71/31 ip4:84.45.19.72/32 ip4:84.45.19.73/32 ip4:84.45.19.74/32 ip4:84.45.19.75/32 ip4:84.45.19.79/32 mx -all"

The domain has two MXs, cluster5.eu.messagelabs.com, and cluster5a.eu.messagelabs.com.

Queriing the MX "cluster5.eu.messagelabs.com" returns the following A records now:

195.245.230.83
85.158.136.51
85.158.136.67
85.158.136.83
193.109.254.3
195.245.230.51

So the sender passes the SPF test. The only scenario I can think of is that when ORF queried this domain, it did not get this A record back, but now it does.
