SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at blocking the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the person getting it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic around the world, so that they all can recognize if an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.
