SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, so that they all can recognize whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it's discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
