How to setup DMARC records in CPANEL

In this tutorial, we 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.

1. Login to cPanel
2. In the Domains section click Click the Advanced Zone Editor icon
3. Choose your domain from the drop down box.

You will then see an available 
Add a Record section. Below are the settings you should enter in the fields:

FieldSetting
Name _dmarc
TTL 14400
Type TXT
TXT Data In this field you must choose how you want recipient servers to handle email from your domain that fails SPF/DKIM validation. Options are outlined below in red:
None: v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
Reject: v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
Quarantine: v=DMARC1; p=quarantine; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400

Alternately, you can request an email report of failed DMARC validations by adding a valid email address, such as the following:

None: v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none; ruf=mailto:user@example.com; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400
Reject: v=DMARC1; p=reject; sp=none; rf=afrf; pct=100; ruf=mailto:user@example.com; ri=86400
Quarantine: v=DMARC1; p=quarantine; sp=none; ruf=mailto:user@example.com; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400

4. Click the Add Record button to save your record.

You will then see your record listed on the Zone File Records section.

Congratulations, now you know how to setup DMARC records in your cPanel for email validation! This should increase the chances of your email being delivered to many emails servers.
