This won't actually stop them spoofing your domain (most spammers aren't

the headers). However, you'll feel better knowing that a few less of their
spams get through to sites implementing SPF checks or running SpamAssassin

It won't stop them from doing it, but it makes it very easy for anyone to see that the messages are forged. Eventually, when enough people check, it _will_ stop them.

yeah except without pra (covered by microsoft patent applications) spf is prone to spoofing as well.
