@tharris: Hello,

That log message is an intermediate status logged for the email. ORF rarely logs intermediate statuses, but in this case the "Always log SPF check results" option is enabled at In a sense, passing the SPF check does not explain why the email in question slipped through the checks.

For general advice on achieving better spam filtering performance, I recommend reviewing our Best Practices Guide at If the spam filtering performance has dropped significantly recently, or if you need personalized assistance, please send the following to for analysis:

* The configuration file called orfent.ini (located in Program Files (x86)\ORF Fusion by default).

* The .log files related to the issue (orfee-2014-08-19.log, orfee-2014-08-20.log files, located in Program Files (x86)\ORF Fusion by default). Please send raw .log files, ORF Log Viewer CSV exports are not suitable.

Thank you.
