A TXT record is furthermore employed in case you activated the so-called SPF protection for your email addresses so that you can protect them from being forged. In such a case, the record contains data showing that a particular electronic message is sent from a dependable and authorized mail server. You can use a TXT record for any type of other information also, just like your company details, for example.
