SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, so they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.
