DMARC Setting in Cpanel

In the email system, it is very possible that other people can send an email with your business email address.

Suppose you have an email address support@kirim.email. Other people who are not on the KIRIM.EMAIL team can use that email address to send an email and abuse it. This is because the email recipient’s mail server cannot distinguish which e-mail was actually sent by KIRIM.EMAIL and which e-mail was forged by a third party.

So it is not surprising that there are many cases of phishing, spoofing, and spamming via email. The reason is that the e-mail address used to send the e-mail is genuine, so the e-mail recipient simply believes in the e-mail content. Though not necessarily the person who sent the email is part of the service provider they use. So that we don’t know who the person behind the email address is sending us an email.

Because the vulnerability in this email is so dangerous, a group of organizations came together and made technical specifications that aim to reduce the potential for email abuse using the email authentication protocol method.

From there, a term that we call DMARC appears. DMARC stands for DMARC Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance. If we translate it into Indonesian, the meaning is more or less Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Compliance.

At its core DMARC are an email protocol and reporting protocol designed to help ensure the authenticity of the sender’s identity. So that with this DMARC, the recipient’s mail server can distinguish which email we really send and which are not. The impact is that if we activate DMARC, our email will be more trusted by the recipient and it is likely that our email will no longer be marked as SPAM.
