Due to AOL scomp and SPF we have stopped forwarding all together.
Existing accounts are grandfathered and we are working on migrating them all to IMAP-SSL. ALL new accounts have to IMAP their mail from our servers. I get WAY too much junk from forwarded mail going to AOL. I also get way too many tech support calls about forwarded mail being rejected because of SPF

Forwarded mail shouldn't be rejected as a result of SPF if your mail server is using SRS to rewrite the from addresses in the "mail from" part of the SMTP transaction of the forwarded emails... as long as your SPF record isn't messed up of course. :)
