If custom value is set for SPF explanation text, it is ignored in SPF-Check

    Could you please release a quick fix? The plan "to be fixed in one of the future updates" sounds like underrating the importance of 
    proper SPF filter handling, which is nowadays a vital asset in even the most modest hosting service level that involves mail.

    It seems that a custom notification in combination with a reject mode, ignores any SPF check completely.
    With this combo all mail that should have been rejected is accepted instead and  missing any spf related headers..
    Without the custom SPF explanation text the SPF reject on fail works, but with the above mentioned 550 5.7.1 status.

    Hello @Arjan,

    Thank you for the feedback.

    The issue was already fixed for the future major release. It should be already available in Plesk 17.9 preview version (not for production usage).

    The backport to Plesk 17.8 is also planned. However, there is no exact ETA for now, stay tuned for this article updates.
