What is SPF? Sender Policy Framework helps prevent email spam by identifying the mail server responsible for sending out emails on behalf of your domain. This header field is added to emails sent by authenticated SMTP servers. Enabling this option on your public MX will help make your domain more secure and prevent abuse through spam and malicious emails.
Creating SPF record for Send13
