Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is intended to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one address, but to look as being sent from another, generally with the objective to scam the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain name, an exclusive record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers around the world have it. The record contains all of the email servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an address part of the domain. When an email is sent, the first DNS server it encounters checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. If, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the particular domain, the e-mail message won't be submitted and it'll be discarded. When you use this service, it will stop third parties from sending spam messages which look as if they have been sent by you.
