SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, so they all can identify whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.
