DMARC allows a domain owner to publish policies in DNS, telling remote mailers what to do with messages that do not align with these polices. DMARC is built on top of two existing technologies: SPF, or “Sender Policy Framework”, and DKIM, or “DomainKeys Identified Mail”.
Note that the DKIM and SPF email authentication helps prevent spam. It can be detected of incoming and outgoing messages automatically.
Enabling these features should reduce the number of failed delivery notifications you receive when spammers forge messages from your domain(s). These features also work to prevent spammers from forging messages that claim to be from your domain(s).
Please note that we advice you to set the DMARC ,SPF and DKIM record for your domains.
Kindly follow the below procedure to set the DMARC record from your end kindly follow the below procedure,
1] Login into Direct admin panel
