Is your message getting though?
Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance
Improving mail handling with message validation, disposition, and reporting.
It's often hard to know who to trust. By publicly declaring an organisations policy, receivers are better able to identify how well incoming email is aligned with the senders policy and how the message should be dealt with.
The Sender Preference Framework (SPF) identifies who is authorised to send messages.
Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) signs the message adding confidence that the message has not been altered during transit. DMARC adds confirmation that the signature is from the same domain as the sending one.
You've got this great message, then you ask yourself "How can I tell if my emails are arriving and successfully delivered to their intended destination inbox?"
Are you aware of who is sending mail on your behalf?
By implementing DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) for all outgoing emails, and without any change or impact on delivery, it's straightforward monitoring where emails using your domain are coming from, and if they are successfully delivered, quarantined / marked as suspicious, or rejected.
With increasingly sophisticated spam and phishing filtering, it's imperative email policies and practices are closely aligned.
As threats become more subtle and sophisticated you ask, "Am I doing enough to protect my customers, my brand and my organisation from phishing and spam?"
Are you monitoring your exposure to these risks?
If you've ever asked yourself, "How can I tell if my emails are getting through?", then a DMARC aggregate feedback report will tell you exactly that. Each organisation that has implemented DMARC and receives your email can send you a detailed report listing where the email came from, and whether it was successfully delivered, marked as suspicious, or rejected.
DMARC is gaining traction because of it's effectiveness and Flexibility. Everyone should have confidence in their email and both the UK Government Digital Service and the American National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) recommend implementing Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC).
Our aim is to improve trustworthiness and successful email delivery as well as reduce phishing and spam for everyone.
