SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, so they all will identify if an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
