How to Publish DMARC Records in Cloudflare

July 30, 2022  |  < 1 min read

A DMARC record is a TXT record that is added to your domain’s DNS under the dmarc.yourdomain.com, where “yourdomain.com” refers to the actual domain or subdomain that you are using. It instructs the email recipient on what to do when DMARC authentication is unsuccessful and provides the address for reporting email delivery statistics.

In this article, we explain in detail how to publish a DMARC record in Cloudflare. Let’s dive in.
