Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is intended to prevent the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message can be sent from one email address, but to seem as being sent from a different one, typically with the idea to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a unique record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers globally have it. The record contains all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and if the sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the target destination. If, however, the sending server is not present in the SPF record for the given domain, the email message won't be sent and it'll be removed. If you use this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails which look as if they have been sent by you.
