Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one e-mail address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some manner the person receiving it. In the event that the SPF protection is activated for a domain, a record which includes all the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is placed on all the DNS servers that route the Internet traffic all over the world, therefore they all can recognize whether an e-mail message comes from a legitimate server or not. The check is conducted at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the e-mail message is forwarded, while in the second one it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from using your emails for malicious purposes.
