Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one address, but to seem as being sent from another one, usually with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address under the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when the sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the given domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it'll be discarded. Whenever you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam that appear to have been sent by you.
