Getting rid of SPAM with Sender Policy Framework

SPAM is an inescapable part of email...or is it?

To quote google:

Sender Policy Framework (SPF) records allow domain owners to specify which hosts are permitted to send email on behalf of their domains, making it hard to forge From: addresses. We strongly encourage you to publish SPF records for your domain. Having these records in place will ultimately help fight spam.

Sounds almost too simple to be true, right?

I installed such a record, it didn't take any real effort, though for complex domains the task can be daunting. However, it can't fail to be worth the effort.
