SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email faking. Basically, it indicates sending a message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is placed on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic all over the world, therefore they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.
