SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called email forging. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which has all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, so that they all will identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
