SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at blocking the so-called email faking. In simple terms, this means sending a message from one email address and making it seem to be sent from a different one with the idea to scam in some manner the individual opening it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record that contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is generated. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the web traffic internationally, thus they all can recognize whether an email message originates from a legitimate server or not. The verification is done at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, and in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to the supposed recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from using your email addresses for malicious objectives.
