Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one e-mail address, but to seem as being sent from a different one, frequently with the purpose to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, a specific record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide get it. The record features all the email servers that are permitted to send valid messages from an address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. When you employ this service, it will prevent third parties from sending spam emails that seem to have been sent from you.
