SPF, which stands for Sender Policy Framework, is an e-mail safety system, which is employed to verify whether an email message is sent by an authorized server. Employing SPF protection for a given domain will prevent the counterfeiting of email addresses made with the domain. In simple words: enabling this attribute for a domain makes a particular record in the Domain Name System (DNS) which includes the IP of the servers which are allowed to send email messages from mail boxes using the domain. The moment this record propagates worldwide, it will exist on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic. Whenever an email message is sent, the first DNS server it goes through verifies whether it originates from an accredited server. When it does, it is forwarded to the destination address, but if it doesn't come from a server part of the SPF record for the particular domain, it is discarded. In this way nobody can mask an e-mail address and make it appear as if you are sending spam. This technique is also known as email spoofing.
