Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is used to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one e-mail address, but to appear as being sent from a different one, frequently with the idea to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a specific record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record contains all e-mail servers that are permitted to send authentic messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when its sending server is authorized, the message is forwarded to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be forwarded and it'll be discarded. When you employ this solution, it will prevent third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent by you.
