Sender Policy Framework (SPF) helps to prevent your outgoing messages from being marked as spam, and also protects your domain against spoofing. SPF specifies the mail servers that are allowed to send email for your domain. Receiving mail servers utilize SPF to verify that inbound messages that appear to come from your domain were actually sent by servers authorized by you.

Without SPF, messages sent from email on your domain are more likely to be marked as spam by receiving mail servers.

In this doc, we will cover the steps to add an SPF record for your domain.
