In this episode of Email After Hours, we’re officially demystifying the DMARC record.

In this episode of Email After Hours, we’re officially demystifying the DMARC record. 

DMARC is critical for brands looking to protect their domains from spoofing and phishing attacks. Plus, it’s now required by major mailbox providers like Gmail and Yahoo. 

But let’s face it: DMARC and email authentication can get super technical—and sometimes feel like alphabet soup. 

That’s why we’re spending 25 minutes popping the hood on DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance) and BIMI (Brand Indicators for Message Identification).

Our expert guest this week is Florian Vierke, Senior Manager of Deliverability Services at Mapp Digital. He joins Guy and Danielle to highlight the importance of trust in email, provide valuable insights into DMARC and BIMI, and talk about how these protocols keep the bad guys out.
