SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so that they all can recognize whether an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
