SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, so they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, while in the second it is removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.
