SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, thus they all will identify if an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is done 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 unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
