I have lately had some posts returned with a "seems to be forged" message.
Two reasons for that:
- first is if I use the smtp server from our local telco - saix - then there is
  no apparent relationship between where the message comes from and
  where it comes from, if you follow my Irish...
- Second is if the same telco assigns me an IP that has been put on a list
  of bad boy IPs.

So it is kind of pot luck if you see this message or not.
