What is DMARC record How to Implement DMARC with EasyDMARC
DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) is a policy that protects organizations from Business Email Compromise attacks and allows them to receive DMARC reports from mail service providers. Also, DMARC is an email authentication protocol, that is designed to give email domain owners the ability to protect their domain from unauthorized use, commonly known as email spoofing. It is a policy that lets the domain owner publicize to its email receivers what they need to do with the unauthenticated emails coming from his/her domain. So how to implement DMARC with EasyDMARC?
EasyDMARC offers easy and user-friendly deployment of DMARC protocol and offers additional tools and features for smooth domain monitoring and email infrastructure visualization.
Implement DMARC with EasyDMARC
Steps of DMARC Implementation
Identify your domains
The first step of your DMARC deployment project is the identification of all your owned domains. This includes all the domains used to send emails on your company’s behalf, look alike or cousin domains and just any inactive/parked domains.
Add your domain
Firstly, register an account at EasyDMARC and add your domain(s) (see the screenshots below)
The system automatically will forward you to the Add Domain page after the registration.
Generate the DMARC record for your domains
As you add your domain, we automatically generate DMARC Record for you.
The same DMARC record applies to all the domains under one account.
Publish the generated DMARC Record in your DNS
Here is an example of a published record in the Cloudflare DNS
This is the only interaction point with the domain and EasyDMARC. We always stay outside of your organization’s network border, don’t change and add anything into your infrastructure. Thus, you can follow guides to add your record into your DNS:

Analyze your DMARC data
Now you are able to collect detailed DMARC reports into your EasyDMARC dashboard. Most importantly, it can take up to 72 hours before you will see DMARC data in your dashboard. Usually, email service providers send DMARC aggregate reports once a day. In addition, DMARC reports will help you gain insight into your email infrastructure and point to the sources that need proper authentication.
Thus, more information about DMARC you can find in the RFC7489
