Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is intended to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email, but to look as being sent from another, generally with the objective to scam the recipient for some reason. When SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a specific record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world receive it. The record contains all the mail servers that are allowed to send valid messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. In the event that you use this service, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails which seem to have been sent by you.
