SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called email faking. Basically, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all can recognize whether an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, but in the second one it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.
