SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. In simple terms, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the person getting it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic around the world, therefore they all will recognize whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
