SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Basically, this means sending a message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, so they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from using your emails for harmful objectives.
