What is SPF? 

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is a method of fighting spam. As more time passes, this protocol will be used as one of the standard methods of fighting spam on the Internet. An SPF record is a TXT record that is part of a domain's DNS zone file. The TXT record specifies a list of authorized host names/IP addresses that mail can originate from for a given domain name. 

Once this entry is placed within the DNS zone, no further configuration is necessary to take advantage of servers that incorporate SPF checking into their anti-spam systems. This SPF record is added the same way as a regular A, MX, or CNAME record.
