Learn More About Email Sentry.
Email Sentry was developed in response to email authentication requirements and other changes being introduced by Google and Yahoo this month. The changes immediately target bulk email senders and specifically those who send more than 5,000 emails a day.
These changes are significant for businesses that rely on email communication, particularly for marketing purposes. Compliance with these new regulations is crucial to ensure email deliverability and avoid penalties, such as having emails directed to spam folders or blocked altogether.
What Are The Changes All About?
Essentially, protecting your domain from nefarious activity like email spoofing, which in turn protects consumers inboxes from spam and phishing attacks. Google and Yahoo (which will be followed by others) are implementing these changes to improve the experience of consumers by ensuring the email you receive is legitimate and welcome. You can read more about the changes below.
Who Does This Affect?
These changes are immediately applicable to parties that a) send email from a custom domain, or b) use services that send email as your custom domain, such as IDX systems, CRMs, and mass email applications like MailChimp. If you use a custom domain for email and/or your Agenta website includes IDX, these changes may apply, as email alerts from your website to your clients are sent as your custom domain.
What Do I Need To Do?
As an Agenta client, your domain is currently pointing to our servers. If you already have a self-managed DKIM and DMARC solution, or if you are sent instructions by a third-party provider to add DNS records to your domain, please share those records with email@example.com, and we’ll be happy to update your domain.
The Challenge With DMARC
For DMARC authentication to function as intended, a DMARC report must be sent to a recipient email address at the same domain. Without the reports, a domain owner won’t know about any potential issues DMARC is designed to prevent.
In a race to meet the new requirements, many vendors are providing DMARC records to customers that do not contain a recipient address. This means if there is a problem with your domain, you won’t know! Not to mention, what to do about the problem.
On the other hand, when configured properly, the recipient address may receive dozens of emails every day. You can imagine how burdensome this quickly becomes, not to mention understanding what the reports mean and how to identify a concerning problem.
