SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Basically, this means sending a message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, thus they all will recognize whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is performed at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.
