Email providers such as Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, etc, are tightening their security in order to reduce spam to their users.

We need to make some DNS changes to your domain to help your emails deliver better to your customers, clients, suppliers, etc.

In order to do this, we need to implement some settings on your domain name – SPF, DKIM, and DMARC.

SPF tells the internet what server your emails can be trusted from. For example, your email server and your website (but not someone impersonating you)

DKIM tells the internet that all emails need to be digitally signed by your email server, ensuring the legitimacy of the email. DKIM helps stop attackers from sending emails that look like they come from your domain by encrypting a signature within every outbound message header. 

DMARC builds on SPF and DKIM to help protect from fake (phishing) emails sent to you and your customers.

Obviously, you don’t want to receive fake emails; the same goes for your customers receiving fake emails pretending to be you.

The good news is that we have already done an initial audit of your domains and DNS records. We have been busy checking and editing your SPF records, setting up DKIM, and adding DMARC records.

But we need your help to finalise your DNS setup

We need to know if you are using any 3rd-party systems that send emails with your domain name. For example, an accounting system, a custom application, a CRM system, a printer/scanner, or your website for example. This will allow us to add these systems to your DNS records to help with your compliance as per below image.
