SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at blocking the so-called e-mail forging. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another with the objective to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that contains all the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses within the domain is generated. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, thus they all will recognize whether an email message comes from an authentic server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, and in the second one it is removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will prevent any unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful objectives.
