Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one address, but to appear as being sent from a different, ordinarily with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record includes all the mail servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. Whenever you use this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam that appear to have been sent from you.
