What is SPF scanning? Answer/


SPF stands for Sender Policy Framework, it is an anti-spoofing measure.  SPF looks at the domain found in the 'mail from:' part of the mime file, then checks that domain's SPF records to make sure that the domain that the email is reporting matches the mail servers that send that domain.
