I agree that SPF is not a good idea, but I support it (not just lip service), for two purposes:

  • it gets me rid of all those "security updates from Microsoft" before my virus checker gets to see them (since has a SPF record).
  • it adds up to the pain for using SMTP that it might help to overthrow it - especially when it is adopted.

I view SPF not as a solution to a specific problem, but as a nail on the coffin of SMTP, and I'm ready to adopt the next nail if I can find one.
