Issue/Introduction

When revieing your SMG scanner logs, you see many instances of the following error:
 

spf_validate_mailfrom: No valid from; using sending address: [email protected]

Cause

This happens when SenderID is enabled and an email is received with a null sender ( mail from: <> )

Resolution

This entry is erroneously logged as an ERROR, but that is not accurate. This is simply an INFO level notification that can safely be ignored. This will be addressed in a future build so the entry is logged approriately.
