Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is intended to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from another one, frequently with the purpose to fraud the recipient for some reason. If SPF protection is activated for a domain name, an exclusive record is generated for it in the Domain Name System and all DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record features all mail servers that are allowed to send legitimate messages from an e-mail address within the domain. When an email is sent, the very first DNS server it encounters verifies the SPF record and if its sending server is authorized, the message is sent to the target receiver. When, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the message won't be sent and it will be discarded. If you use this solution, it will stop third parties from sending spam which seem to have been sent from you.
