SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another with the purpose to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain, a record that includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is made. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, thus they all will recognize if an e-mail message originates from a legitimate server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it is removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
