    I have problems setting the dmarc i'm using this format

    "v=DMARC1; p= quarantine; rua=mailto:dtes@dtes.ec"

    but when i test it the dmarc does not appear in the original message in gmail.


    is it a problem with the format of the dmarc i'm using ?

    Hello :)

    There is no native support for DMARC at this time, but you can try manually adding the required TXT record. Google offers some instructions on this here:

    Thank you.

    After some experimenting I found that in the WHM DNS Zone Editor you need to set the domain to _dmarc the RR to TXT and input the dmarc record something like (without escaping any ; or @)
    Code:
    "v=DMARC1;p=none;pct=100;rua=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com;ruf=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com"
    

    To test you have the proper structure you can check with

    $ dig +short txt _dmarc.mydomain.com
    should return
    Code:
    "v=DMARC1\;p=none\;pct=100\;rua=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com\;ruf=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com"
    
    or

    $ nslookup
    > set type = TXT
    > _dmarc.mydomain.com

    will return something like
    Code:
    _dmarc.mydomain.com	text ="v=DMARC1\;p=none\;pct=100\;rua=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com\;ruf=mailto:serveradmin@mydomain.com"
    Read the documentation at this page

    I found this http://www.inmotionhosting.com/supportemail/fighting-spam/dmarc-setup tutorial where it says to use this in the text field: "v=DMARC1; p=quarantine; sp=none; ruf=mailto:example@mydomain.com; rf=afrf; pct=100; ri=86400" which is different than the one you used. How do I know which is right for my domain/server?

    So that link says to use both rua and ruf, correct?
