DMARC is a DNS record intended to verify both the sender's and their email's legitimacy, and thereby, increase email security. While Mailgun neither offers DMARC records nor checks for their presence, your emails can still comply with DMARC.
What Is DMARC?
The goal of DMARC is to ensure that the domain in the From address reflects the same domain that is sending the email. As more email service providers adopt DMARC, messages that have a domain in the From address that differs from the sending domain will be quarantined, marked as spam, or rejected completely. Current email best practices are clear that the domain of the From address and sending domain should match.
How Can My Emails Be DMARC-Compliant?
Emails will be DMARC-compliant when the following two conditions are met:
- Your Mailgun (sub)domain's DKIM record is configured within your DNS provider's system and verified by Mailgun
- The (sub)domain present in the From address of the emails matches the Mailgun sub(domain) you're using to authenticate with and send your emails through.
How Do I Receive Replies To My Email?
If you need to ensure that any reply emails are routed to a specific address, we recommend using the Reply-To header so that while the From address is configured in a DMARC-compliant manner you will still receive any replies to your emails.
