SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at blocking the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending a message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic internationally, so they all will identify whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second it's removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious objectives.
