SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, this means sending some message from one e-mail address and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the person receiving it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, so they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it's removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
