Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is employed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to seem as being sent from another one, ordinarily with the idea to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers around the world receive it. The record features all the e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and in case the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message won't be sent and it will be discarded. In case you use this solution, it'll prevent third parties from sending spam messages which appear to have been sent from you.
