it's hard to say without seeing the results... do you feel comfortable posting the actual results, or your domain name, for us to see them?

we/you can use "request attention" and as a moderator to mask out your info after the thread is done

you may be using a neutral <?> operand or specifying A records for your domain...
"v=spf1 a mx -all"

this will permit ANY A RECORD and ANY MX RECORD for your domain, but deny everything else.

You could easily have that many records

Which Mail server you are using? is it Qmail?
If you have Qmail try this,
In Server > Mail, check you had enabled DomainKeys "Verify Incoming Mail". Disable that (and restart Qmail and POP/IMAP services), it should work fine. If you disable Domain Keys "verify incoming mail" Then we had more Spam coming in. The answer to that was to install spamdyke and that has resolved the problem with us.  
regards,
