Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is intended to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail address, but to seem as being sent from another, usually with the idea to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers globally have it. The record includes all the email servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message won't be sent and it'll be discarded. When you use this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam emails which appear to have been sent by you.
