[Total: 5    Average: 5/5]

Today, I will show you How to Setup DMARC records in cPanel. This allows you to specify how mail servers should handle messages from your domain that do not have valid SPF and DKIM records setup. Since the DMARC standard is used by many email providers (such as Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, Hotmail, Outlook), it can increase your chances of email being delivered successfully.
