A TXT record is additionally employed when you activated the so-called SPF protection for your e-mails so that you can shield them from being forged. In this situation, the record contains info showing that a certain electronic message is sent from a reliable and authorized mail server. You could use a TXT record for any kind of other information as well, such as your company details, for example.
