What are DMARC, DKIM, SPF, and MX records? And why should I care?
First off, a bit a definition :
- Sender Policy Framework (SPF) is an email authentification method that allows checking during mail delivery that a mail claiming to come from a specific domain is submitted by an IP address authorized by that domain’s administrators.
It basically verifies the sender’s IP address.
- DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) helps prevent spoofing on outgoing messages sent from your domain by adding an encrypted signature to the header of all outgoing messages.
It basically verifies who’s sending the email.
- Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) help mail administrators prevent hackers and other attackers from spoofing their organization and domain. Spoofing is a type of attack in which the From address of an email message is forged. A spoofed message appears to be from the impersonated organization or domain.
It basically prevents your email from being forged by someone else.
- Mail Exchanger Record (MX Recor) specifies the mail server responsible for accepting email messages on behalf of a domain name.
It basically lets another know which server can send an email for you, and where incoming emails should be routed to.
All four elements allow verifying the authenticity of each email sent. The more you’re set-up, the better another server will trust you, enhancing your email deliverability.
It’s that logic! Now let’s set up everything up.
