SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is kept on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, thus they all will identify whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate 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 is discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious purposes.
