Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is employed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from a different, generally with the purpose to scam the recipient someway. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers globally receive it. The record includes all mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it'll be removed. In the event that you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam e-mails that seem to have been sent from you.
