SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, therefore they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second it is removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from using your emails for harmful purposes.
