[Pkg-exim4-users] Does sa-exim block the use of the SPF ACL?

I'm receiving spam sent to myself with myself as the forged sender. I
tried stopping that by setting up SPF records saying that my MX is the
only legal sender of mydomain.
But email still gets through. spamassassin/sa-exim lists SPF_SOFTFAIL
as one of the reasons in the headers below. But I would like it to fail
hard and immediately reject something that doesn't comply with the SPF
records. Is that possible?
I also tried activating the SPF ACL in the debian exim4 config by
CHECK_RCPT_SPF = yes
into /etc/exim4/conf.d/main/00_localmacros and then running
But that hasn't had any effect that I can detect.
Does using sa-exim somehow block the rest of the exim4 ACL stuff?
What follows are the headers of a spam mail that got through. Mailbox
name and domain name have been changed to protect the innocent:
