Another popular use for this sort of records is the email SPF (Sender Policy Framework) security, that ensures that a particular email address will not be spoofed and that individuals will not get spam from allegedly your mailbox. The TXT record contains information about the mail server where your electronic messages arrive from and functions as proof that it's a trusted one. As there are no standards regarding the content of this sort of a record, you could also include any other information also.
