I realized that lastes Kerio Connect version has changed the anti-spam policy in the SPF test:

Old Kerio Connect (=< 9.2.5p3) consider SPF test failed only when it come thruogh a FAIL result (SPF record "-ALL"), so that mail with a SOFT FAIL result ("~ALL") will not be blocked.

The latest version considers the SPF test fully failed for both FAIL and SOFT FAIL.
So if you set the filter to "BLOCK THE MESSAGE" it immediately reject every mail that "SOFT FAIL"...

So I was forced to change the filter on ALL my clients, setting it to "add spam score for the message" = 3 or 4.

- is that a right policy
- can somehow differentiate the score between "SOFT FAIL" and "FAIL"?

We also noticed this behavior and had to set a score instead of a block.
An option to differentiate this would be helpful.

I concur. I'd also like to chose an action based on hard/soft fail.

There was a change in 9.2.7 but it has been reverted since 9.2.8. Soft Fail should not be blocked. As for the action to choose with hard/soft fail, please submit a feature request.
