Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail, but to appear as being sent from another one, typically with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world have it. The record contains all the email servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target destination. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message will not be forwarded and it will be discarded. Whenever you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent by you.
