I've set up Postfix, Dovecot and MySQL according to this tutorial from linode. In the virtual aliases table I have an account which forwards to my gmail.
Because these messages are then being delivered through my mailserver, which obviously is not designated as a permitted sender by the spf record of the originating domain, the messages are marked as "spf: fail" and have the added header like "firstname.lastname@example.org via myservername.com".
This makes perfect sense but I'm wondering if there is some way to deliver/forward these messages without the spf penalty? For now everything is fine as I have added filters in gmail such that forwarded mail will not be marked as, and delivered to spam. But historically, mail providers have a tendency to change and often tighten policies in regards to mail delivery, so for that reason I'd like to know if there is a better way to configure this.
