The following errata report has been submitted for RFC7208,
"Sender Policy Framework (SPF) for Authorizing Use of Domains in Email, Version 1".

You may review the report below and at:

Type: Editorial
Reported by: Alessandro Vesely <vesely@tana.it>;

Section: 3.5.

Original Text
      EXAMPLE.COM.          MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM
      *.EXAMPLE.COM.        MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM
      A.EXAMPLE.COM.        MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM
      *.A.EXAMPLE.COM.      MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM

Corrected Text
      EXAMPLE.COM.          MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM.
      *.EXAMPLE.COM.        MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM.
      A.EXAMPLE.COM.        MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM.
      *.A.EXAMPLE.COM.      MX      10      A.EXAMPLE.COM.

This is an editorial errata, since it is a punctuation error.

It is not technical, because the example might have implied an $ORIGIN of "." or some other strange setting, while a normative reference --rfc 1035-- makes it very clear that "[d]omain names that end in a dot are called absolute, and are taken as complete."  Hence no technical meaning is affected.

This erratum is currently posted as "Reported". If necessary, please
use "Reply All" to discuss whether it should be verified or
rejected. When a decision is reached, the verifying party  
can log in to change the status and edit the report, if necessary.
