Thank you for answering.

I used installed MailScanner more than 8 months ago and then upgraded 
today using the installer for Ubuntu available here:
and thus spamassassin configuration should have been a bit "automagic", 
as the install script would like to be.

There is no /usr/share/perl5/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/ but I can 
see the same file here:

root at myserver:/etc/mail/spamassassin# ls -la 
-r--r--r-- 1 root root 30596 apr 28  2015 

And then:
root at myserver:/etc/mail/spamassassin# grep SPF /etc/mail/spamassassin/*
/etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre:# SPF - perform SPF verification.
/etc/mail/spamassassin/init.pre:loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::SPF
/etc/mail/spamassassin/ pseudo-header, and for various 
rules such as SPF checking.

(there is no /etc/spamassassin/ dir)

Thank you
