I am having an issue with Postfix and SPF that I can't seem to figure out. I have installed SPF for Postfix using the guide on this link (postfix-policyd-spf-perl).

However, I don't want Postfix or Mail::SPF to "reject" mail if it fails. All I want it to do is add the Authentication result to the emails header like it normally does. I have tried to find a config file for postfix-policyd-spf-perl but I can't seem to locate anything.

Below is an example of the rejection message: #< #5.7.1 smtp; 550 5.7.1
<>: Recipient address rejected: Please see;;;r=MAILER>

OK, so postfix-policyd-spf-perl doesn't have a configuration file. I had to switch to the python version in order to configure the SPF settings.
