After almost 5 years of silence, Microsoft has resumed sending DMARC reports

@selea Microsoft is pretty evil when it comes to email.

Their Outlook client uses a completely different port (465) than other emails clients.


It is just the client thou, so nothing really special there. It is using HTTPS/443 anyway.

But well, how the servers handle span and shit is shit

@selea I get them from Google almost daily. I have done *everything* I'm supposed to do to please Google but I still get them. So I just delete them now.


Well, that is what DMARC-reports is. Unless you are getting RUF-reports constantly :)

You should send the reports to a dedicated box, and parse them with tools to make them human readable :)


RUA is meant for being delivered daily,
RUF is delivered when the DMARC is broken

@selea Turns out I get reports from Google because others are sending spam with my domain name (but not via my server). Not too much I can do about that I suppose.

@selea I've set v=spf1 ip4: -all and v=DMARC1; p=reject;; Dunno what I can do differently. The DKIM key is set properly and I've verified that too.


Ah you just have a RUA, that means that you will get reports despite if the DMARC fails or not. So you getting reports is completely normal.

If you set a RUF - you will get notified if DMARC fails.

I can recommend this:

You get a weekly digest, kinda nice.

@selea Beefed up my SPF policy a bit. Let's see if that helps.
