How will your campaigns be affected by security changes in Gmail and Yahoo?

Starting in February 2024, Gmail and Yahoo will make changes focused on DMARC authentication that could affect the deliverability of your emails. Let’s see in this article how to adapt your campaigns to these settings.

The key change is that from now on, the authentication protocol (DMARC) will have stricter measures in order to prevent phishing and domain misuse. You can see the details at this link.

The changes include:

  • Domain requirement: it will be essential that you have a personalized delivery domain.
  • Authentication requirement: from now on, you must configure your SPF, DKIM and DMARC records in your hosting, so your emails can be authenticated.
  • Low spam rate requirement: if more than 0.3% of the emails you send are marked by your contacts as SPAM, all your campaigns could stop reaching inbox.

How will this change impact your Campaigns?

These changes to DMARC can have a significant impact on the inbox arrival of your email marketing campaigns to recipients with and email directions, as well as to all those who use the enterprise services of Google and Yahoo to manage their emails with their own domain.

What should you take into account?

Accurate Settings: Make sure you have accurate and up-to-date DMARC settings. It is important to verify that your SPF, DKIM and DMARC records are correctly implemented to avoid authentication problems.

Continuous Monitoring: Regularly check your domain’s spam rate in Postmaster Tools to anticipate and stay proactive in the event of any inconvenience.

What do we advise you from Doppler?

To continue having successful campaigns, we list a series of suggestions that you can put into practice:
