SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some way the person getting it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, therefore they all can recognize if an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
