Look for my article in the next (?) issue of _Linux Gazette_ entitled 
"On Qmail, Forged Mail, and SPF Records" that among other things
explains the backscatter-spam problem, and the qmail MTA's trait of
haplessly generating same (because the qmail-smtpd module accepts
incoming mail before it's semantically evaluated by further modules that
later handle incoming mail streams).

The editor's looking forward to the howls of rage from DJBware fans.  ;->
