Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a verification system, that is designed to stop the so-called e-mail spoofing where an email message is sent from one e-mail address, but to look as being sent from a different, ordinarily with the objective to scam the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain, a unique record is made for it in the Domain Name System and all the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all the e-mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an email address under the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to verifies the SPF record and when its sending server is permitted, the message is sent to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server doesn't exist in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message won't be submitted and it will be discarded. In case you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam emails that look as if they have been sent from you.
