WHAT IS DMARC?

DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) is an email authentication protocol that utilizes widely used TXT and DKIM protocols to determine, whether or not a given message is legitimately sent from the sender, and what to do if it isn’t. 

The DMARC record adds the reporting functionality in existing DKIM and SPF records, allowing senders and receivers to improve protection of the domain from spoofed spams and keep them out of people's inboxes.

Once deployed with a hard policy, it will not only maximize your spoofing protection, reduce phishing and spam but it will also add benefits into the following areas:

Security

Disallow unauthorized use of your email domain to protect people from spam, fraud, and phishing.

Deliverability

Use the same modern plumbing that mega companies use to deliver email.

Visibility

Gain visibility into who and what across the Internet is sending email using your email domain.

Identity

Make your email easy to identify across the huge and growing footprint of DMARC - capable receivers.
