Publishing SPF records for your domain(s) can only benefit you.  Set
them up today.

Setting up your mail server to make decisions based on a senders SPF
records can only cause problems if the action you specify is to delete
email that is suspected to be spoofed.  Instead, flag the email, and
you judge how effective it is for your domain(s).

Bottom line:

1) Publish SPF records for your domain(s)
2) Consider setting up your email server to flag messages based on SPF
results, in addition to whatever other anti-spam measures you take
