Simple yet comprehensive authentication tool
The email authentication protocol DMARC allows you to gather reporting on the emails sent on behalf of your domain. As email itself isn't the most phishing-proof messaging method, DMARC helps fight abuse of your domain. With a DMARC record and reporting enabled, Flowmailer gives you a comprehensive list of the addresses that try to send emails from your domain. Step-by-step, you're working towards a protected email domain.
Flowmailer's DMARC reporting feature provides you with a table of all the domains that have been (trying to) send emails with your domain. Of course, you'd only wish those to be the ones that are fully authenticated, but that's not always the case. Some sender are not SPF or DKIM-aligned, and some are not authenticated to send emails with your domain in the first place!
The Sender Policy Framework is a form of email authentication that validates an email message that has been sent from a mail server you have given permission in order to detect forgery or prevent spam. It protects the 'envelope' of the email from abuse. A sender that isn't SPF-aligned is probably not added to your SPF list of addresses yet.
Tip: Watch Lars' explanation of SPF
DKIM verifies that an email message was not forged or altered and that you sent it. By implementing it, you are helping keep your subscribers safer and improving your email deliverability. DKIM's cryptographic key is only something you should own.
DMARC is a form of email authentication and, most importantly, a reporting tool. It allows you to control how you handle emails that are not authenticated with SPF or DKIM. The DMARC reporting feature will show you exactly who've been sending emails on your behalf. With a simple color coding system (green, yellow, red) you'll see right away who's sent authenticated, nearly authenticated, and non-authenticated emails from your domain.
With this feature, you get insight in what parties (i.e. your event organizer or warehouse manager sending emails on your behalf) need improved authentication. And, in the end, get your DMARC policy to "Reject"
DMARC compliance is a must-have for everyone who's sending email. It gets you in the inbox, but most of all keeps your domains and customers safe from spoofing & phishing. Try it for free
