is this just me? SPF cannot find Envelope-From?

Take a look in spam.assassin.prefs.conf. Mine says this:
# SpamAssassin will attempt to discover the address used in the 'MAIL
# phase of the SMTP transaction that delivered this message, if this data
# has been made available by the SMTP server. This is used in the
# pseudo-header, and for various rules such as SPF checking.
# This should be explicitly set for MailScanner
Basically you have to tell it where and how to find the Envelope From
address in the headers. So make sure your MailScanner is adding this
header (obviously you can call it whatever you like, this is for my site).
