SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, thus they all can recognize if an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.
