SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail counterfeiting. Essentially, this means sending a message from one email and making it look like it’s sent from another one with the idea to scam in some way the individual opening it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, therefore they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a valid server or not. The verification is done at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for harmful objectives.
