How's your email doing?

Are your policies effective in preventing spam, phising, and fraud?

DMARC gives you the answer.

Firstly, let's fix

3 common DMARC myths.

1
DMARC setup is complicated

Setup for SPF, DKIM & DMARC* can be a breeze if you are given the right help.

2
DMARC is high maintenance.

You should be able to get everything setup in under an hour. Once its done, its done.

3
DMARC is expensive

Quite the opposite. If you only pay for what you need, the long term costs are minimal.

Full featured, cost effective DMARC for small business is here.

*If you're not quite sure what SPF, DKIM, or DMARC are then you're not alone. Check out our faqs for some 'low-tech' explainations.

So, who's up for some Set and Forget?

DMARC for big business needs complex solutions and monitoring - or an IT department. Fortunately, for a small business its mostly a 'set and forget' situation. Once your policies are up and running you can leave them to do their thing.

Did you know?

DMARClite was built by a small business owner, for small business owners.

I've been running my own email server since 2003 and I knew I ought to get on top of this DMARC stuff. There were some very powerful (and expensive) solutions for the big corporations, but I couldnt find anything that addressed the needs of a small business owner such as myself.

Capacity?

Do I need 100,000 to 5 million records analysed each month?
No, on average I'm only receiving 350 records each day.

Contract?

Do I really need a 12 month contract and a monthly fee?
No, my setup rarely changes, once I'm done, I'm done.

Experience?
Well, I've been in IT for 39 years now. How hard can it be?
Challenge Accepted!

I wonder...

Now I've built this thing, are others in the same situation? Maybe they'd like to use it too?

Curious? Ready to take a test drive?

Put the credit card away, you dont need it to get setup.

OK, time we answered your FAQs

What is a DMARC?
Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance ...Catchy huh?

Published in your DNS records, a DMARC record is a simple line of text that defines :

  • What to do if a message claiming to be from your domain fails your SPF policy.
  • What to do if a message claiming to be from your domain fails DKIM signature verification.
  • Where to send reports on what action was taken with messages claiming to be from your domain.

A typical DMARC record looks like this:

"v=DMARC1;p=reject;pct=100;aspf=r;adkim=r;rua=mailto:rua@yourdomain.com;ruf=mailto:ruf@yourdomain.com;fo=1:s:d 

With this one little line of code you get feedback enabling you to see who is doing what with your email.

What's an SPF?
Sender Policy Framework

Published in your DNS records, an SPF record is a simple line of text that defines :

  • IP addresses authorised to send email for your domain. e.g. 198.51.100.123
  • 'A' records authorised to send email for your domain. e.g. mail.example.com

A typical SPF record looks like this:

"v=spf1 mx a ip4:198.51.100.123 a:mail.yourdomain.com include:smtp.your_isp.com a -all"

With this one little line of code you can prevent 90% of attempted spam associated with your domain.

What's a DKIM?
Domain Keys Identified Mail

A small block of encrypted data is inserted into the email header by the sending email server using a secret key.
The data contains items such as:

  • The email's From address
  • The email's To address
  • The email's Subject
  • The email's size

Published in your DNS records, the DKIM record contains the unlock key for the block of encrypted data.

A typical DKIM record looks like this:

"v=dkim1 p=MIGeMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GMADCBiAKBgGwNjJb4vNPfRT4XOPbhmCBNAjodD"

Using the DKIM key, the block of encrypted data is unlocked. The unlocked data is then compared with the non-encrypted information in the email header. If the email has been tampered with then the DKIM comparrison will fail.

What's a BIMI?
Brand Indicators for Message Identification
BIMI

Published in your DNS records, a BIMI record is simple line of text that defines :

  • The location of the true and authentic branding logo for your domain .
  • The location of any alternate branding logos your sub domains should use.

A typical DIMI record looks like this:

"v=bimi1 l=https://www.example.com/images/yourlogo.svg"

Bimi is a relatively new concept (February 2019), as such not all email clients support BIMI yet.
The logo image must be in a .svg or .svgz format, this can be an issue small business who's logos are usually in a .png or .jpg format.

For these reason we recommend leaving BIMI to the big corporations. For now use a Gravatar instead. Gravatars are much simpler to setup and are currently much more widely supported by email clients. Visit www.gravatar.com to get setup - it only takes a couple of minutes to do and you have to agree, it does look rather professional.

What's a DNS?
Domain Name System

When it was invented, the internet was tied together by the telephone companies. And just like every telephone has a telephone number, internet resources (pc's, servers, phones, etc) were given resource numbers - we call them IP addresses.

Because humans are not good at remembering numbers, it was decided internet resources should have a human friendly name known as 'domain names'. And, there would be a set of lookup tables to translate these domain names into their respective IP addresses, these are called 'DNS servers'.
Example:

  • IP addresses of your website 198.51.100.123
  • Human readable address of your server example.com

By adding suffixes to domain names we can further point to other resources under our control without having to create an etirely new name.

  • Domain name example.com points to 198.51.100.123
  • Domain name mail.example.com points to 198.51.100.124
Can I try without having to pay?
Absolutely! Processing up to 50 DMARC records each day is free.
We reccomend you set your daily processing limit to 50 record during periods when you dont need analysis.
Is this a subscription service?
This is a pay-as-you-go service. There are no contracts, there's no monthly fees, and there's no mimimum spend.
What if I need more than 800 records anylising each day?

We are 'DMARC lite'. What you are looking for is more 'DMARC heavy-duty'.

These fine providers will be able to help you.

Why do you charge for the indepth IP information?

Detailed information like this is not free, we have to buy it in from specialist providers on a per IP address basis.

However, we will save the information for you so you won't have to pay again if you re-visit the detailed IP address information.

What about DAMRC forensic reports?
Most email providers simply don't produce the 'ruf' forensic reports, its just too resource hungry. So, for every 1000 aggregate reports you receive there may be just one or two forensic reports. As such, the forensic reports are so few and far between its just not possible to create any meaningful statistics from such little data.
