Basically, this means sending some message from one e-mail and making it seem to be sent from another one with the objective to scam in some manner the individual getting it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain name, a record that contains all of the mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is stored on all of the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, so that they all will identify whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The verification is conducted at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second it's removed and it never reaches the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domains will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
