Sender Policy Framework or SPF record is used with other email authentication methods to detect spoofing or other forgery methods targeting a sender's address. An SPF record falls under TXT records category especially when adding it to a domain.

A TXT record is a general purpose field that holds text data for a purpose. A SPF/TXT is a very specific record type used for email verification. A domain's owner implements SPF/TXT records to publish which mail exchanges, list of IP addresses, or subnets that send email on behalf of the domain.

SPF/TXT records including multiple lookup should not exceed 10 lookups!

v=spf1 ip4: ip6:2a05:d018:e3:8c00:bb71:dea8:8b83:851e -all
