Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail, but to seem as being sent from a different, often with the purpose to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record includes all the e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address within the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message will not be forwarded and it'll be discarded. In case you employ this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam which look as if they have been sent from you.
