SPF is short for Sender Policy Framework. It's a DNS record list that allows mail receiver servers to know which mail server was used to send messages on behalf of your domain. In addition, SPF aids in preventing sender fraud, as sometimes spammers might forge the "Return-Path" address to trick receivers into believing that the email is from an authorized user. By having an SPF record in place, you can easily inform receivers about all the mail servers allowed to send emails for your domain.
