It would be nice if SPF hard and soft fail actions could be to add a certain amount to the spam score.  Say for example, I want to add 4 to the spam score for a hard failure and add 2 to the spam score for a soft failure.  The only action being tag/block/quarantine is limiting as there are legitimate senders out there with incorrect SPF records.  I saw a few posts previously requesting this but no further comments from Barracuda or anyone else.

+1  would seem to be very useful and not hard to implement?

+1 from me as well, I have suggested basically the same thing multiple times over the years, and basically no response other than "you're the only person asking for this soooooo... nope".   Here are links to my previous suggestion posts.





Maybe we can drum up some interest here.  Please Barracuda, implement a plus/minus scoring option that can be used instead of the all-or-nothing whitelist/blacklist.
