SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some way the person receiving it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is stored on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic worldwide, so they all can recognize whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second it is removed and it never reaches its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.
