Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is designed to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one address, but to look as being sent from a different one, often with the objective to fraud the recipient someway. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, an exclusive record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world get it. The record includes all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. In case, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message won't be forwarded and it'll be removed. If you use this service, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam which appear to have been sent by you.
