"DMARC Monitor" is a function for Pro pran. To use this function, please subscribe to the Pro plan.

Configure CMC DMARC Monitor

CMC DMARC Monitor is a service that receives and visualizes DMARC reports from ISPs.

With respect to a corporate domain, there may be multiple systems using this domain to send email. There is a risk of authentication errors in mail delivery because some systems do not support sending domain authentication, or DKIM or SPF are not properly published.

With the CMC DMARC Monitor, you can easily detect mail servers that do not support DMARC outbound domain authentication from the DMARC reports you receive. It can also determine if it can declare "quarantine" or "reject" in its DMARC policy.

In addition, the IP address and WHOIS information of unauthrized servers sending mail spoofing can be easily viewed. Thus, the occurrence of spoofed mails can be detected and properly handled.

Confirm DMARC record

After the DMARC record is registered into DNS, click the Confirm DNS button. If the DMARC record is successfully referenced from the DNS, the status is set to "DNS-Registered".


If you have to confirm DNS validation at a later date, due to the time needed to complete the registration of records to the DNS, do the following.

  1. Log into management console and click the DMARC settings tab.
  2. Choose the sending domain name that you want to confirm.
  3. Click the Confirm DNS button.

Delete DMARC record

If you want to stop receiving DMARC report to CMC DMARC Monitor, you need to delete "sender domain" registered at DMARC settings tab.

  1. Log into management console and click the DMARC settings tab.

  2. Choose the sender domain name that you want to delete and click Del button.

    remove DMARC record

  3. Enter your login password in the confirmation dialouge and click delete button. After that this DMARC config on the CMC DMARC Monitor is deleted.

  4. Delete the DMARC record that is still published on the DNS.


If the DMARC record generated at CMC is still published in the DNS, the DMARC report will continue to be sent to the CMC DMARC Monitor even if the sender domain at CMC config is deleted.

Please make sure to delete the DMARC record published in the DNS, or at least change the reporting destination ("rua" parameter).
