I do publish and check SPF records, however it's rather limited and
doesn't catch much.  Its main benefit is helping you decide if a
message really did come from whom it claims.  For example here are
some headers from a message I received a few days ago:

Return-Path: <goodsam@goodsamclub.com>
Received-SPF: pass (ns1: domain of goodsam@goodsamclub.com designates as permitted sender)
Received: from co-exch.den.agi-corp.com (mail-co.affinitygroup.com [])

The "Received-SPF" header was generated by my server, and tells me
that even though the SMTP client mail-co.affinitygroup.com does not
sound at all like the Good Sam Club, it is in fact authorized to send
mail on the club's behalf.
