Essentially, this means sending a message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. When the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record that contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is placed on all DNS servers that route the web traffic globally, so that they all can recognize if an email message originates from a trustworthy server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will stop all unauthorized people from making use of your email addresses for harmful objectives.
