Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to look as being sent from another one, frequently with the purpose to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a special record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally receive it. The record contains all e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an email address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. If, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message will not be submitted and it will be discarded. In case you employ this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam messages which look as if they have been sent by you.
