No Joy. I forwarded a sample bounced email as part of the support ticket. All that happened was that I got an automated reply:
This is just a notification that your message has been moved to our mail blocks queue. This queue is information that our abuse staff uses to determine who is blocking us, why we are being blocked, and at around what time period we are being blocked. Your ticket will be used for information purposes only in helping us get the block removed. You may not receive a response, but you will be instrumental in helping us get this issue resolved faster. Thank you for your mail block report.

I’ve heard nothing since and the problem is not solved - the bouncing is still happening.
It seems that the email forwarding feature in the Dreamhost Panel is half-baked if it allows forwarding but doesn’t include an SRS option.
Surely this problem must come up frequently for other people: Lots of email servers/providers send using SPF and some (like Demon Internet in the UK) will automatically bounce any incoming message using SPF that doesn’t have the correct sender credentials.
