DMARC Aggregate Reports

What are DMARC aggregate reports?

DMARC aggregate reports provide information about percentages of email passing/failing SPF (Sender Policy Framework), DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) and DMARC checks.

Although they do not provide much information about individual email messages, aggregate reports can provide valuable visibility into the health of your email program, and help you identify potential authentication issues and/or malicious activity.

You can use the rua tag in the DMARC record to specify the recipient of aggregate ports.

For example, the following rua tag requests the ESP to send aggregate reports to

DMARC aggregate reports are encoded in XML format, which is a data format easy for machines to parse, while time-consuming for humans to read.

Here is an example aggregate report:

Receiving aggregate reports

When you sign up with DMARCLY, a mailbox is created for you in our system to receive aggregate reports. After you have published the DMARC record with the rua tag set to that mailbox, DMARCLY will start receiving aggregate reports on your behalf. These reports are usually sent daily, therefore DMARCLY should have them ready after you have published the DMARC record after a couple of days.

Each time DMARCLY receives these reports, it processes them and saves the parsed data in the database. Next time you log in to the DMARCLY dashboard, the data is rendered into beautiful charts and give you insights into the health of your email program.
