Another popular use for this sort of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) protection, which makes sure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that others will not receive spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes details about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and serves as verification that it is a dependable one. Because there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you could also include any other info also.
