SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at stopping the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this means 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 person getting it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.
