SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email forging. Basically, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic all over the world, so they all can recognize if an email message comes 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 e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
