What is Sender ID Framework and how do I create SPF record for my domain?
Sender ID Framework (SIDF) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF)
Sender ID Framework and Sender Policy Framework is intended to be a simple way to improve deliverability of legitimate e-mail. Sender ID works by verifying the domain name from which the e-mail messages are sent.
SPF validates the originating email address of a message. This is not always the same as the 'from' address as it relates to the actual server sending the message.
SPF and SIDF both validate e-mail sender addresses, and both use similar methods to do so. Both publish policy records in DNS. Both use the same syntax for their policy records. They differ in what they validate and what "layer" of the e-mail system they are concerned with.
