I'm with Res here... I see no purpose for softfail other than allowing
others to use SA for scoring. I don't use SPF on all of my domains
because some of them have users that will have issues with it. The
domains I use it on, I always hardfail. I suppose I can see softfail as
useful if all you *want* to do is help people score mail purporting to
be from you, but you'll never know if it's helping.
