SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called email forging. Basically, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some way the individual getting it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is kept on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic across the globe, thus they all can identify if an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
