Another popular use for this type of records is the e mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that helps to ensure that a particular email address shall not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive junk mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features info about the mail server where your digital messages originate from and serves as verification that it's a trusted one. Since there are no restrictions about the content of such a record, you can include any other info as well.
