DMARC Evaluation error


Question: Below I have pasted the error I am getting when attempting to send e-mails now. I also get the bulkmailer report that says the email was sent then I get the error. Can you PLEASE assist?

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Delivery to the following recipients failed permanently:

* [email protected]

Reason: There was an error while attempting to deliver your message with [Subject: "Your GSA Contract Modification"] to [email protected] MTA p3plsmtpa11-02.prod.phx3.secureserver.net received this response from the destination host IP - - 521 , 521 5.2.1 : (DMARC:F1) This message failed DMARC Evaluation and is being refused due to the policy provided by the From domain.

Answer: AOL requires a DKIM authentication because of its participation in DMARC. This is great for those who just use their AOL e-mails for personal mail since it helps prevent people from spoofing their e-mail but it may be a problem for those who do any e-mail blasts.

Google returns lots of results on that issue.

This is the oficial AOL announcement.

What should you do?

In almost all cases, we recommend that you switch to sending mail from your own domain.

For mailing lists we recommend configuring reply behavior to fill the From line with the mailing list's address rather than the sender's and put the actual user / sender address into the Reply-To: line. Please also note that current "auto unsubscribe" logic based upon bounces might be too rigid until this change has been in place for a while.

For website operators with 'share from email' functionality, please consider using an email address from your own domain as the From address and populate the Reply-To: line with the address of the person sharing.
