SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, therefore they all can identify whether an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
