Sender Policy Framework, or SPF, is a validation system, that is used to prevent the so-called email spoofing where an e-mail message is sent from one email, but to appear as being sent from a different, frequently with the idea to scam the recipient in some way. If SPF protection is enabled for a domain, a special record is created for it in the Domain Name System and all of the DNS servers worldwide receive it. The record includes all the mail servers that are allowed to send authentic messages from an address part of the domain. When a message is sent, the very first DNS server it goes to checks the SPF record and in case its sending server is permitted, the message is forwarded to the targeted destination. If, however, the sending server is not contained in the SPF record for the particular domain, the email message will not be forwarded and it will be removed. If you employ this solution, it'll stop third parties from sending spam emails that appear to have been sent by you.
