Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is employed to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to look as being sent from another one, ordinarily with the objective to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a unique record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world have it. The record contains all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target destination. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message will not be sent and it will be discarded. When you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent by you.
