About DMARC records
First of all, a DMARC record is a TXT record published to the DNS for your domain, under dmarc.yourdomain.com, where “yourdomain.com” is your actual domain or subdomain. It tells the email receiver what to do when an email message fails DMARC authentication, and also where to send reports on email delivery statistics.
For more information on DMARC records, refer to: Everything about a DMARC Record.
Generate your DMARC record
Before moving on, make sure you have generated your DMARC record, using our free DMARC record generator.
