If you are receiving mail from your isp checking for spf makes no sense i think. Correct me if I'm wrong here, but i assume your isp has an incoming email server that accepts all your mail. You then get this mail by some means (pop, bsmtp, ?). It would only make sense if your isp does spf checking on the incoming mail.
Are you injecting mail from your server using something like fetchmail (which retrieves mail via pop and injects it into your local email server)? If so, your mail will always be from localhost, and spf checking is really not neccesary.
