SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called email faking. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is saved on all DNS servers that direct the web traffic around the world, thus they all will identify whether an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
