In simple terms, this indicates sending a message from one e-mail address and making it seem to be sent from another one with the purpose to scam in some manner the person opening it. In case the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which has all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses part of the domain is made. The record is saved on all DNS servers that route the Internet traffic across the globe, so they all can recognize whether an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the email goes through and in the first case the message is forwarded, but in the second one it's discarded and it never gets to the intended recipient. Applying SPF records for your domains will prevent all unwanted people from using your emails for malicious objectives.
