I would add just to verify that your /etc/mailscanner/spamassassin.conf is properly symlinked to your spamassassin config directory, but yes, if that isn't the problem, appears to be a spamassassin question.

Hi guys,

I have something weird. Most mails with valid SPF record are marked
correctly (SPF_FAIL or SPF_PASS), but I see some messages which should
be marked as SPF_PASS get no SPF_PASS 

Assuming you are talking about the SPF_PASS rule in the SpamAssassin
report in the X-vdbeu-MailScanner-SpamCheck: header, this is a
SpamAssassin question, not a MailScanner question per se. You might do
better on a SpamAssassin list. See [ | <> ] .
