SPF stands for Sender Policy Framework. It is an email authentication method that verifies the origin of email messages, preventing unauthorized senders from sending messages on your domain's behalf. To enable SPF, you must add the records linked with your email address and identify Clear Books servers as a genuine source of emails indicated as originating from your account to ensure that your emails are delivered.
