Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, which is employed to stop the so-called email spoofing where an email message is sent from one email address, but to appear as being sent from a different, often with the objective to scam the recipient someway. When SPF protection is activated for a domain, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers around the world get it. The record contains all of the e-mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and when the sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted receiver. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the specified domain, the email message will not be submitted and it will be discarded. Whenever you employ this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent by you.
