SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, so that they all can identify whether an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is done 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 one it is discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.
