An SPF record is a TXT record part of a DNS domain (Domain Name Service). An SPF record lists all authorized host names / IP addresses permitted to send an email on behalf of your domain.
The Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email authentication technique that is used against email spoofing. Setting up an SPF record helps prevent malicious persons from using your domain to send unauthorized (malicious) emails, called email spoofing. The SPF protocol is used as one of the standard methods to fight against spam and is also used in the DMARC specification.
Today, an SPF record is a MUST-have DNS record for reliable email delivery. It is a type of email verification to protect your emails from being tampered with. It protects your reputation against phishers and spoofers.
