|ARRL Email service working or not?||w9lvm||1 day ago|
Please see the e-mail I sent to your @arrl.net address.

|It seems to me that at least a portion of the problems being reported might be due to the enforcement of SPF (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sender_Policy_Framework) by the arrl.net MX in conjunction with badly configured SPF records for certain sender's domains.

Did you change the target address (e.g. destination) for your forwarder at the time this problem started occuring?
In my experience there is no problem sending from @gmail.com to @arrl.net. And the public MXes (which I admin) used by my personal domain have no problem with @arrl.net mail.
There are many possible explanations (all of which vary in plausibility). It's really hard to say for sure what the problem is without seeing mail server logs and/or bounce messages.
You might have changed your e-mail client, or it's settings, about a month ago and now your forwarded @arrl.net mail is landing in a spam/junk folder or possibly being deleted.
The e-mail provider for your target address may have changed their mail server configuration or anti-spam settings (which can include a wide variety of things) about a month ago and are now rejecting the forwarded @arrl.net mail.
The @arrl.net e-mail provider may have changed their mail server configuration about a month ago which caused your target address provider to start rejecting the forwarded mail.
The @arrl.net e-mail provider may have changed mail server configuration or anti-spam settings about a month ago and are now rejecting mail sent from the various providers you're using for testing.
In fact at pretty much any point in the chain there is the possibility that one of the ends of a link may have changed enough to interrupt the delivery. The trick is finding out where the problem is really occuring.
One thing I've learned from my experience as postmaster (for a non-trivial FOSS project) is that it is much easier to search for a problem in the mail server logs when I have the approximate date/time of the failed message along with the sender and recipient addresses or even the Message-ID.
So to trace this problem effectively you'll have to figure out who to contact (it should be email@example.com, but not all domains support that address even though it is required by RFC5321) and send them a complete description of the various e-mail sources you've used for tests as well as the target address for your foward. It is possible that you may need to send a message that you know will fail to your @arrl.net address and then send as much information as possible (e.g. To, From, Date) to the postmaster so that they can search the mail server logs. Doing any less than this will not help get your problem resolved.
It also might help to search your various mail boxes for bounce messages.
That's what I meant by a failure ... I did not receive the mail from afraid.org.

I just sent two test mails to my arrl.net forward. One originating from my home mail-server and the other from gmail. Both were delivered in under 10 minutes. This is consistent with what I've observed in the past.
The only delivery failure I've observed is when I tried creating a freedns.afraid.org account (after reading KA0MVK's post).
You may want to check your profile and ensure that the "Email" box on your Account Information page lists the "real" address you want the mail forwarded TO (not the @arrl.net address). Then make sure that the "Opt-in to have a @arrl.net email alias" is checked.
