Hi, this is probably no bug. Troy sent me this explanation:
Hey Martin,
        We've been really blasted by fraud spam attacks 
lately.  Spammers have 
been sending mail out by the billions, I would suspect, 
claiming to be 
from crosswire.org.  We get all the bounces-- hundreds of 
They completely max out our sendmail limit.  I've done all 
I know how. 
We are now playing the SPF game, so mail sent as 
crosswire.org will have 
to use our smtp auth server, and we honor the SPF flag if a 
server has 
it set.  My guess is that maybe this person has sent an 
email with a 
FROM domain which has SPF turned on, but didn't use one of 
domain's authorized smtp senders.  Either that or our 
sendmail threads 
were maxed out when they tried to send-- though I'm not 
sure why they'd 
get a 'relaying denied'  In any case.  I hope this might 
give some insight.


Please contact your ISP for help with this problem.
