[SOLVED] Allow SPF fail @ SMTP level and then route those emails to quaratine

Oct 26, 2019
Dear Moderators,

I want to allow SPF fail emails in the SMTPD level.And then is there any rule we can set so that it will add SPF FAIL value 5.0 and ultimately ending up those emails to my quarantine, where I can decide whether to release or blacklist.

Because so many clients of us ,not caring of their SPF entries which results in rejection.

Just disable SPF.

(Configuration/Mail Proxy/Options: Use SPF: no)
Just disable SPF.

Dear Tom,

Ok that will do.Will that action will add SPAM SCORE SPF FAIL and end up those emails in my quarantine for my review?

Or Do we have to define any rule to direct those SPF failed emails to Quarantine?


This will disable SPF on SMTP level..

(This does not change anything in the spamassasssin rules)
Disable SPF on SMTP level, the default spamassassin rules will/should add a score to the emails sent from wrong SPF setups.
