Postfix Forwarding

Budget $30 - $250 USD
Bids 13
Average Bid $42

This should be a very easy job for someone.

I have a minor issue with my mail server haven't been able to solve. I can send fine (using Postfix), but am having a problem with receiving messages. I have email forwarding setup through my registrar (Namecheap), which works fine...but when I send out email I'm getting SPF "softfail" errors, since it sees Namecheap's MX settings, which doesn't match my server IP. Namecheap hosts their own SPF record for forward addresses, so adding my own gives a "permerror" for having multiple SPF records.

I am on a small VPS, so I would like to keep forwarding incoming email to external accounts. Doing this through the registrar was the easiest option, but I can't pass SPF checks doing it (unless I'm overlooking something). I tried forwarding through Postfix using aliases, which worked when sending locally...but when I reply from an outside application (Yahoo, for example) nothing happens. It seems like the server wasn't checking for incoming messages or I had wrong settings somewhere.

I'm looking for someone who can have my incoming messages be forwarded correctly so I can pass SPF checks.
I only need 2 aliases: info@....(or a catch-all) and bounce@.....

The server is just a small Ubuntu VPS setup with LAMP, using Postfix w/ SASL for sending mail.
