Thanks, but that was not exactly what I was asking.

I know I can configure it in MailScanner, but - which is the best way of doing it. Through Sendmail as a milter or the p5-mail-SPF plugin ??

 A simple question....

 I'm installing SPF to help the fight against spam.

 Which is the most efficient way of doing it.....Sendmail milter or the p5-Mail SpamAssassin plug-in. They both do the same, but is one a better way than the other ?

 If you have Mailscanner and spamassasin installed you just need to configure mailscanner.  Check the setting in MailScanner.conf located in:
