Do you send email using your own domain name? If so, there is something you should know about and it may affect your ability to reach your email audience.
Starting in February of 2024, Google and Yahoo will require most email senders to use DMARC in order to send email to Google or Yahoo recipients. This means that if you want your emails to be delivered to Google or Yahoo recipients, you need to properly enable DMARC for your business email domain.
DMARC is an email authentication protocol that, together with SPF and DKIM, makes it easier to determine whether or not a given message is legitimately from the sender, and what to do if it isn’t. It is designed to give email domain owners the ability to protect their domain from unauthorized use, commonly known as email spoofing.
By implementing DMARC, you increase the likelihood that your emails are delivered to your customers’ inboxes, and not marked as spam or rejected. This will help you maintain a good email sending reputation.
Widomaker can help you enable SPF, DKIM, and DMARC for your business email domain, even if the domain is not hosted with us. We are email deployment experts. Contact us today, by telephone or email, to discuss this with an email expert!
