SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from a different one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, thus they all will recognize if an e-mail message originates from a valid server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from using your email addresses for malicious purposes.
