Frequently Asked Questions For DMARC

What is DMARC compliance?

DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication Reporting and Conformance. It is an association between an email address, a domain name, and a message. Email addresses that different domains might use are considered separate from each other. For example, when you send an email to the domain example.com, it will not get forwarded to another domain like example.org or example2.com.

What is the purpose of the DMARC record?

The DMARC record aims to help users understand how their content is being received. It helps them to decide if a valid sender is receiving it or not.

How do I know if a domain has DMARC?

DMARC is an extension to the DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) standard that allows for creating a "signature" of a message. It uses public keys to verify that the intended recipient has signed a letter.
The first step in DMARC is verifying that a domain has already implemented it. This can be done with tools like VeriSign's DomainKeys Verifier or Google's DKIM Verify tool.
