SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, so that they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from an authentic server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for malicious purposes.
