Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, which is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an e-mail message can be sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from a different one, usually with the idea to fraud the recipient in some way. When SPF protection is enabled for a domain, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide have it. The record contains all of the e-mail servers that are permitted to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address under the domain. When an e-mail is sent, the first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and in case its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the targeted destination. In case, however, the sending server is not included in the SPF record for the specified domain, the message will not be sent and it will be discarded. In the event that you employ this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam messages which seem to have been sent by you.
