A DMARC policy is the value specified by the p= tag inside a DMARC record. It has 3 modes: none, quarantine, and reject. Email servers rely on it while processing an inbound email.
DMARC is necessary for any business that care about their email deliverability, mail domain security, and brand reputation, be it big or small.
We assume that the sender is an illegitimate one. In this case, simply turn on p=reject in your DMARC record and emails from that particular sender will be rejected. If you have set up SPF/DKIM for that sender before, make sure to clear the settings too, so that the emails won’t pass SPF or DKIM.
Active Domain & Passive Domain
Active domains are domains from which emailing is happening actively, however, passive domains are domains that are reserved by an organisation for future usage and there is no mailing happening from these domains at present.
ProDMARC works at DNS level. Irrespective of the mailing application(s) it will work.
DMARC plays an important role in terms of validation of incoming emails, so if an incoming email is suspicious/impersonated email it will solve that problem, however, if it is an email which has been sent from a genuine domain (eg :- marketing email) then it will pass.
There is a slight likelihood the receiving organisation might not have deployed any authentication mechanism for incoming emails and in such case DMARC validation will not happen, however, considering the current situation – by and large most of the organisations do validate incoming emails.
ProDMARC does not receive any sensitive information. The data received is meta data.
O365 helps an organisation in performing incoming DMARC validation on inbound emails, whereas ProDMARC helps in protecting a mail domain from spoofing / impersonation / unauthorised usage i.e. outbound email communication.
