SPF (Sender Policy Framework)

SPF is an email authentication method designed to detect forged sender addresses during email delivery, by checking the sender domain and IP address, claimed in the envelope of the email, used when an email gets bounced.

When used in combination with DMARC, SPF may be used to detect the forging of the visible sender in emails (aka email spoofing) as well as the bounce address.
