SPF, which is an abbreviation for Sender Policy Framework, is a certification system that aims at preventing the so-called email counterfeiting. Essentially, it indicates sending a message from one e-mail and making it appear to be sent from another with the purpose to scam in some way the person receiving it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which includes all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is kept on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic globally, so that they all will identify whether an email message originates from an authentic server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, and in the second it's removed and it never gets to its intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domains will stop any unwanted people from using your emails for harmful objectives.
