Setting up outbound DMARC (and getting reports)

assuming you got outbound SPF and DKIM up and running already

DNS record in Da Place

;DMARC
_dmarc          IN TXT "v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:EMAIL,mailto:EMAIL2; ruf=mailto:EMAIL,mailto:EMAIL2; aspf=s; adkim=s"

policies are

p=none
p=quarantine
p=reject

reports are

    rua for aggregate reports
    ruf for forensic reports

you can only obtain reports to emails addresses who’s domain you own – eventually allow reports to be sent there

vi os3.su.db

nethence.com._report._dmarc IN TXT v=DMARC1

vi os3.su.db

os3.su._report._dmarc IN TXT v=DMARC1

Acceptance

inbound

host -t txt _dmarc.nethence.com
host -t txt DOMAIN._report._dmarc.DOMAIN2

outbound

…try to see if you’re doing the checks already? (TODO)
