To the best of my limited ability to look it up, I think powweb is
correct, that the spf lookup of reports.spamcop.net against
18.104.22.168 will fail.
The spf record for spamcop.net is 'v=spf1 a -all" but I don't know how
the process is supposed to handle reports.spamcop.net which doesn't
resolve but uses spamcop MXes.
Or, to say it another way, reports.spamcop.net doesn't have an A record,
which is what the spf is based.
