too much spoof and spam coming through - McAfee Security for MS Exchange

I seek assistance.  Running 8.0.7905.119.  Will soon be upgrading to the latest.

Getting too many spam and spoof emails from our own domain.   Added SPF record few days but still receiving spoofed emails from our own domain.  Blacklisted our own domain too in McAfee Security for MS Exchange still no luck.  I do see lots of spoofed emails are being caught and deleted.

Thoughts?   Thank you

You can always try lowering the spam threshold.

MSME: Policy Manager, Gateway, click on Anti-Spam, click on Edit next to Core Anti-Spam settings.

ePO: Scanner Settings, Gateway, Master Policy, click on Anti-Spam, click on Edit next to Core Anti-Spam settings.

Ours is set as follows:

High=12.0, Medium=7.0, Low=5.0, Reporting=12.0

Actions to take if spam is detected

If spam score is High Delete message, Quarantine message

If spam score is Medium Delete message, Quarantine message

If spam score is Low Route to User Junk Folder, Quarantine message
