RFC 5451, "Message Header Field for Indicating Message Authentication Status", April 2009

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 7001

Source of RFC: IETF - NON WORKING GROUP

Errata ID: 2617

Type: Technical

Section 2.4.2 says:

   hardfail:  This client is explicitly not authorized to inject or
      relay mail using the sender's DNS domain.

It should say:

   fail:  This client is explicitly not authorized to inject or
      relay mail using the sender's DNS domain.

Notes:

Change [sixth paragraph] for consistency:
1) RFC 4408 (SPF) defines this state as "fail", not "hardfail".
2) The other subsections of 2.4 of this RFC define "fail".
The change makes the result state consistent and parallel to those as noted in other RFCs and for the alternative methods defined in this RFC.
