SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email faking. Essentially, this means sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, therefore they all will identify if an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.
