SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at protecting against the so-called e-mail faking. Essentially, this means sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is made. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, so they all can identify whether an e-mail message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.
