MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
X-Priority: 3
X-Mailer: SMTP
Received-SPF: unknown (myserver.com: error in processing during lookup of domain of mydomain.com: Include loop detected)
X-RCPT-TO: <arnold_dreef@mydomain.com>
The address arnold_dreef@mydomain.com doesn't exist
This IP is not on my server

This is My SPF zone: v=spf1 a mx ip4:x.x.x.x/32 include:myserver.com -all

I received this message because i had Catch all enabled.

Why when some one is forgering my domain pass if send to my domain?

If I have understood your question properly, I think emails to your local domains from your local domains are not included in SPF checking as you know they should pass as they are local !!!

I am not sure though if the above statement is correct for both authenticated and non authenticated SMTP emails as I have not looked.

I understand that but, the option in SPF properties says local IP addresses not domains, and that IP is not mine.

And finally I not have enabled Pass local IP addresses option
