OK, thanks. This is clear, and useful information. fmp.com publishes a
proper SPF record, and with regard to the mail server DMARC mitigation
program I wrote for Courier, the envelope sender is "alias at fmp.com",
which can possibly be adjusted, but which matches "postmaster at fmp.com"
which I'm using for the body From header on munged emails, and on top
of this FMP publishes "a mx ptr ip4: mx:linode.fmp.com
-all" for SPF, which grabs just about everything and should be OK.
