Getting started in Email Fraud Protect

Updated over a week ago

New EFP customers and Broadcom prospects onboarding on to the Valimail/EFP platform should point their DMARC record to the platform by creating a DMARC NS record and point it to ns.emailfraudprotect.email. (notice the period at the end).

_dmarc.yourdomain.com    NS    ns.emailfraudprotect.email.

Follow these steps to point your DMARC record to Symantec Email Fraud Protect.

Update your _dmarc TXT record.

This allows Symantec/Broadcom to receive your DMARC aggregate reports.

If you already have a _dmarc TXT record: add dmarc_agg@emailfraudprotect. to the "rua" parameter. Your TXT record should look as follows:

"v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:[email protected];"

If you don't have a _dmarc TXT record: create the following TXT record in DNS:

Type

TXT

Host/Name

_dmarc.<your domain name>

Value

"v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:[email protected];"

Example: If your domain name is vmcs1.com, the host/name value to create for the TXT record would be _dmarc.vmcs1.com

Note:

  • If a _dmarc TXT record already exists, be sure to only add [email protected] to the "rua" parameter; do not modify any other parameters in the record unless you're sure of what you're doing, otherwise you may impact email deliverability for your organization.

  • No change to your email flow will occur. Symantec will see no PII.
