June 17, 2022  |  2 min read


Setting up DMARC to protect your company email is much easier than it seems. In this post, we will show you 3 easy steps to set up DMARC: create, publish, and analyze.

A DMARC record is used to protect against email spoofing. It is a TXT record that is added to a domain’s DNS record. The DMARC record contains instructions for receiving mail servers on what to do with messages that fail or pass DMARC authentication.

Step 1: Generate a DMARC record

Identify the email domain you send business emails from. For example, if you use the address sales@_mycompany.com to send sales emails to prospects, the domain is mycompany.com & generate a DMARC record.

Use our free DMARC record generator, then add the created record to your DNS.

Step 2: Add the DMARC record to your DNS

Copy the DMARC record from the Skysnag dashboard, then add it to your DNS records. For more instructions on how to do this, please see our guide.

Step 3: Verify the DMARC record

After you have added the DMARC record to your DNS, please validate it using our DMARC record checker tool.
