SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that contains all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is kept on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, thus they all will recognize whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
