DKIM and DMARC Verification for Client Reports

Spending hours maintaining client sites?

WP Remote will streamline your WordPress maintenance process and save you at least 4 hours per site every week.

Are you frustrated by your carefully crafted report emails landing straight into your client’s spam folder? Have Google and Yahoo’s latest directives for email authentication caught you in a bind? If so, you’re not alone. In today’s digital age, securing email credibility is more challenging yet critical than ever. Luckily, WP Remote has a solution that might just change the game for you.

Improve client report delivery rates

By integrating advanced domain verification using DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) and Return-Path settings, you are all set to improve email deliverability for client reports, in line with the latest guidelines released by Yahoo and Google.


What are DKIM and DMARC?

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email verification method that aims to reduce spoofing and spamming by adding a digital signature to every email sent using this method. Receiving mail servers can verify these signatures to check if the emails were actually sent from the purported sender of the email and that they were not tampered with. DKIM also ensures that receiving mail servers do not mark emails sent from a legitimate organization as spam.

Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting, and Conformance (DMARC) is another email authentication method that instructs receiving mail servers what to do with emails that do not pass DKIM. DMARC is always used with DKIM and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) to perform complete checks of all emails.

Return if undelivered

The addition of custom Return-Path domains helps direct bounced emails to your mailbox providing you with direct insight into your client report performance. This helps streamline your customer base and cater to it accordingly.


Easily add records without tech wrangling

The heart of this feature is its ability to link emails with DKIM and Return-Path settings directly to your domain’s Domain Name Server (DNS). This acts as a badge of authenticity, for your emails, significantly slashing the risk of them being marked as spam.

The best part? The verification process is designed to be as straightforward as possible. No more navigating through a maze of technical jargon and complicated steps. Insert the necessary DNS records, and verify them right from within the platform. That’s reassurance and security served on a silver platter.

Navigating the challenges

While the benefits are many, we’re transparent about the challenges too. For instance, you can only associate a single domain with one WP Remote account. If you’re managing multiple accounts, this limitation could feel restrictive. Also, if the DNS world feels alien to you, setting up might initially seem daunting. But not to worry—we’ve got you covered with helpful documentation every step of the way.
