SPF Record : A SPF record is a type of Domain Name Service (DNS) record that identifies which mail servers are permitted to send email on behalf of your domain.
SPF records are typically defined using the TXT record type. There is also an SPF record type, however it is deprecated and thus you should always have at least the TXT record definition present, even if you use the SPF type.
The purpose of an SPF record is to prevent spammers from sending messages with forged From addresses at your domain. Recipients can refer to the SPF record to determine whether a message purporting to be from your domain comes from an authorized mail server.
If your domain does not have an SPF record, some recipient domains may reject messages from your users because they cannot validate that the messages come from an authorized mail server.
If you’ve already set the SPF record for your domain, it means that you have set Google’s servers in the SPF records.

SPF records are defined as a single string of text. Here is an example record:

v=spf1 a mx ip4:192.168.0.20 include:_spf.google.com ~all
The SPF record always starts with the v= element. This indicates the SPF version that is used. Right now the version should always be spf1 as this is the most common version of SPF that is understood by mail exchanges.
