SPF attempts to deny spammers the ability to send email while they forge your domain’s name as the sender (spoofing). SPF adds IP addresses to a list of servers that can send mail from your domains. It verifies that messages that your domains send originated from the listed server, which reduces the amount of backscatter that you receive.

|Additional IP Address blocks for your domains (IPv4 or IPv6)||
IP addresses (IPv4 or IPv6) that you approve to send mail from your domains. The system automatically includes your server's main IP addresses in this list.
