SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is an authentication system that aims at preventing the so-called email forging. Essentially, this means sending a message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from another with the idea to scam in some way the individual getting it. When the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, so they all will identify whether an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's removed and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful purposes.
