*About SPF:* Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email validation system
designed to prevent email spam by detecting email spoofing, a common
vulnerability, by verifying sender IP addresses. SPF allows administrators
to specify which hosts are allowed to send mail from a given domain by
creating a specific SPF record (or TXT record) in the Domain Name System
(DNS). Mail exchangers use the DNS to check that mail from a given domain
is being sent by a host sanctioned by that domain's administrators.
