SPF, which abbreviates Sender Policy Framework, is a verification system that aims at stopping the so-called e-mail forging. Essentially, it indicates sending some message from one email and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual receiving it. In case the SPF protection is active for a domain name, a record which includes all mail servers authorized to email messages with addresses within the domain is created. The record is saved on all of the DNS servers that direct the Internet traffic globally, so they all will identify whether an email message originates from a valid server or not. The check is conducted at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it's discarded and it never reaches its intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domain names will prevent any unwanted people from making use of your email addresses for malicious purposes.
