Agency Settings

Configure the Default Agency and Enabled Agencies settings to start using your domain.

Any Enabled Agencies can use an email address based on the domain (any@yourdomain.gov).

Automated Email Domain checks include:

  • SPF Check - daily

How to Configure DMARC Monitoring

Automatically collect reports from ISPs about your domain's DMARC compliance. In your DNS zones, add a TXT record:

Host: _dmarc.yourdomain.gov

Copy the TXT record value from the DMARC Monitoring section.

The weekly monitoring report will include DMARC Compliance metrics based on each reported source.
