SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the individual getting it. If the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, therefore they all can recognize if an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful purposes.
