SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that is aimed at preventing the so-called email faking. Basically, this means sending some message from one email and making it seem to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some way the person receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is placed on all of the DNS servers that route the web traffic internationally, so they all will identify if an email message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, while in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop all unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.

Using a really time and effort saving interface, all you will have to submit is the hostname of the mail server that will be authorized to send messages from your e-mails and its IPv4 or IPv6 address. Of course, you can add several servers too, when needed. If your e-mail addresses are managed by us, you can also use a more risk-free option by placing a restriction that e-mails can be sent only if your domain names include our MX records.
