Another popular use for this type of records is the e-mail SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that makes sure that an e-mail address shall not be spoofed and that others will not get junk e-mail from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record features information about the mail server where your electronic messages originate from and serves as verification that it is a reliable one. Since there are no standards about the content of this kind of a record, you can add any other info as well.
