SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that is aimed at blocking the so-called e-mail faking. In simple terms, this indicates sending some message from one email address and making it look like it’s sent from another with the idea to scam in some manner the person opening it. If the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that contains all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses under the domain is created. The record is stored on all the DNS servers that route the web traffic worldwide, so that they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a valid server or not. The check is performed at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it's removed and it never gets to the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
