SPF, which means Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail safety system, which is employed to verify whether an e-mail message was sent by an official server. Employing SPF protection for a domain will stop the faking of email addresses generated with the domain. In simple words: enabling this attribute for a domain name creates a special record in the Domain Name System (DNS) which contains the IP addresses of the servers that are permitted to send emails from mailboxes under the domain. When this record propagates worldwide, it will exist on all DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic. Whenever an email message is sent, the initial DNS server it goes through verifies if it comes from an official server. When it does, it is forwarded to the destination address, but when it doesn't come from a server part of the SPF record for the domain, it's rejected. In this way nobody will mask an email address to make it look as if you are e-mailing spam messages. This approach is also called email spoofing.
