Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to look as being sent from another, ordinarily with the objective to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally get it. The record features all the mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an address within the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target destination. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. In case you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails which seem to have been sent from you.
