In case the SPF protection is activated for a domain name, a record which contains all of the mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses in the domain is generated. The record is kept on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic globally, so they all will recognize if an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is done at the first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Employing SPF records for your domain names will prevent all unauthorized people from making use of your emails for harmful purposes.
