SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at stopping the so-called email faking. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, so that they all can identify if an email message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
