Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, which helps to ensure that an e-mail address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not receive unsolicited mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record includes info about the mail server where your online messages arrive from and functions as verification that it's a reliable one. Because there are no regulations regarding the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info also.
