SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at blocking the so-called email forging. In simple terms, it indicates sending a message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the objective to scam in some way the person receiving it. If the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic around the world, so that they all can identify whether an e-mail message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it is discarded and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious purposes.
