SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at stopping the so-called e-mail faking. Basically, this indicates sending a message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is created. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic worldwide, thus they all will recognize whether an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious objectives.
