SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at blocking the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the person receiving it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, therefore they all will identify whether an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, but in the second it is discarded and it never gets to its intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unauthorized people from using your email addresses for harmful objectives.
