"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an anti-spam approach in which the Internet domain of an e-mail sender can be authenticated for that sender, thereby discouraging spam mailers, who routinely disguise the origin of their e-mail, a practice known as e-mail spoofing.

SPF Records are not "required", as in they don't affect your sending or receiving mail flow.
In here you can specify email servers you acknowledge are sending on behalf of your domain.
If you send an email and a recipient has a SPAM Filtering service it will check your SPF records to ensure this is a verified server sending on your domain's behalf. If the server that sent the email from your domain isn't listed in your SPF the SPAM filter will mark it as SPAM.
