SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is kept on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic internationally, therefore they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is performed 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 gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.
