Hello there, Saleshandy users! ๐Ÿ‘‹

Firstly, the DMARC record is part of your domain's DNS settings. You can find it in your domain provider's dashboard, whether you're using Google Domains, GoDaddy, Namecheap, or any other provider.

So, let's dive in and discover how setting up DMARC records can get the best results for your campaigns, increasing the chances of your email reaching the inbox! ๐Ÿ“งAnd don't fret; we're here to guide you through the process.

In this article, you'll find What DMARC is, Why it is required, plus How-to-tutorials to set up DMARC and verify DMARC records.

Let's get started! ๐Ÿš€

๐Ÿš€ DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance)

What is DMARC?

DMARC is a powerful email authentication protocol that takes email security to the next level. It allows domain owners to set policies for email receivers on how to handle emails that fail authentication checks.


Hey, ready for email security superpowers? ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธ That's where DMARC comes in!

DMARC ๐Ÿšฆ serves as a traffic signal for mail servers. When DKIM or SPF checks fail, DMARC guides the servers' actions. Like a traffic signal controlling vehicles, DMARC tells servers whether to mark failing emails as spam, deliver them anyway, or drop them altogether. This ensures appropriate handling of emails based on their authentication status. ๐Ÿ›‘

It also provides you with valuable reports on email authentication and delivery, giving you insights into your email landscape.

So, get ready to be the email superhero with DMARC by your side! Protect your domain, boost your reputation, and keep those spammy imposters at bay. You're in charge of your email kingdom! ๐Ÿ‘‘
