EMAIL AUTHENTICATION CHECKLIST:

AUTHENTICATE ALL OF YOUR EMAIL DOMAINS

This form is designed to help member companies understand the requirements needed for authenticating corporate emails. By completing this form, you’ll have all you need to get the job done! Do it yourself--or give this form to your IT staff and ask them to complete this easy process. Click here for a printer-friendly version of the following form.

Your goal should be to authenticate 100% of your email. The table below outlines some of the categories of email you may be sending, along with the information you need to know. If you do not send a listed category of email, write n/a or leave it blank.

If you are unsure whether a particular domain is authenticated and want to test its status, visit The Email Service Provider Coalition (ESPC) http://senderid.espcoalition.org/. This website features a handy tool that will help you test your emails and ensure that all of your domain names are properly authenticated.

Should you need assistance in gathering the information below or have questions about the authentication process, the Help Center has the answers you need. Technical assistance for a reasonable cost is available to DMA members.
