Basically, it indicates sending some message from one email address and making it appear to be sent from a different one with the purpose to scam in some way the individual opening it. When the SPF protection is running for a domain, a record which contains all mail servers authorized to send messages with addresses under the domain is generated. The record is saved on all the DNS servers that direct the web traffic across the globe, so they all will recognize if an email message comes from a trustworthy server or not. The check is performed at the very first server where the e-mail goes through and in the first case the email message is forwarded, whereas in the second one it is discarded and it never reaches the intended recipient. Using SPF records for your domain names will stop any unwanted people from making use of your emails for malicious purposes.
