Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is designed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from a different one, ordinarily with the idea to fraud the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally get it. The record includes all e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it will be discarded. Whenever you use this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails which seem to have been sent by you.
