Topic: SPF check behavior

In my testing it would appear the at the behavior of the SPF check is:
a) no SPF record in sending domain = drop email
b) source system not listed in SPF = drop email
c) source in SPF = email delivered

Why wouldn't the behavior for 'a' be place in junk? or at least give us a knob to tune what behavior we want. Drop/Deliver/Junk

If someone knows where this knob is please let me know.  The best I've found is enable check = the above and disable check = deliver all. (assuming all other checks pass)

You can change it in SpamAssassin: /etc/mail/spamassassin/local.cf:

score SPF_PASS -10.000
score SPF_FAIL 5.00
