E-mail on the Internet can be forged in a number of ways.  In
particular, existing protocols place no restriction on what a sending
host can use as the reverse-path of a message or the domain given on
the SMTP HELO/EHLO commands.  This document describes version 1 of
the ender Policy Framework (SPF) protocol, whereby a domain may
explicitly authorize the hosts that are allowed to use its domain
name, and a receiving host may check such authorization.  This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet community.

EXPERIMENTAL: This memo defines an Experimental Protocol for the Internet 
community. It does not specify an Internet standard of any kind.
