Getting SFP Fails from Plusnet

Have received 2 topic notifications emails from PN today that have failed on the SPF test. Strange as I did not think PN supported this.

Below is how I normally see PN notification SPF tests

Luckily I'm still seeing the notification as I do not reject SFP but if I do see significant number of spam which can be stop using SFP then I will reject emails. Currently the only 2 emails (out of approximately 500) that have failed the SFP since I enabled this testing are from PN. I enabled the testing since the webmail incident as I now suffer from spam and as I run my own email server I can't use PN spam controls.

Still waiting for PN to resolve this problem. Perhaps they are not to bothered that I will reject their emails because of SPF failures. So much for being on top of spam.
