SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a validation system that aims at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, so they all will identify whether an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.
