How To Turn On DKIM and DMARC
DMARC and DKIM are email security standards that work together to secure your domain's email services.
DKIM makes sure messages aren't altered in transit and removes the "via porkbun.com" notification in Gmail and other email clients. DKIM stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail.
DMARC is an additional security measure that uses SPF and DKIM to help prevent email spoofing. DMARC stands for Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance.
If you want to configure this for your Porkbun hosted email address, here's how:
- Log in. You should arrive at the Domain Management screen. If you're already logged in, click on ACCOUNT in the top-right corner and select Domain Management.
- On the Domain Management screen, there will be a row of icons to the right of your domain. Click on the envelope:
- On the Email Hosting and Forwarding page, scroll to the yellow box marked DMARC Notice and click on the pink "Configure" DMARC button.
- A pop-up message will appear, asking if you are sure you want to configure DMARC for this domain. Click the blue "OK" button to proceed.
- Another pop-up will appear letting you know that the DMARC is queued for configuration. Click the blue "OK" button okay again to close out the pop-up.
- On the Email Hosting and Forwarding page, you will now see a message with a yellow background letting you know DMARC is pending configuration. Once it is configured, the message will turn green and will show your domain is now configured for DMARC. You can choose to delete it or reset it at any time.
