Another popular use for this sort of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which makes sure that a particular email address isn’t spoofed and that people will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your online messages come from and functions as verification that it is a reliable one. As there are no restrictions concerning the content of this type of a record, you could add any other information also.
