However then i look in the MIME-header for the same
mail in my gmail mailbox, there is accually a From:
header at the bottom. Check the included EXAMPLE.TXT file.
(Perhaps this is another sid-milter Solaris bug?)

    Then thinking more about this, i've come to the conclusion
    that this is accually a bug in sid-milter.

    Why should sid-milter throw away mail if it can't find a PRA
    address? Then the sending domain doesn't have SPF/SenderID
    TXT RR in there zone.

    I have registered this as BugId # 1377108 instead.
