Follow this guide to setup a DMARC record in Google G Suite

On this page you will find a comprehensive guide on how to publish a DMARC record in Google G Suite. A DMARC record defines the rules for your DMARC implementation and should be published into your DNS. A DMARC record contains the DMARC policy that informs ISPs (like Gmail, Microsoft, Yahoo! etc.) if a domain is set up to use DMARC. DMARC Analyzer will aid you to generate your own custom DMARC record with our DMARC Record Generator.

After generating your DMARC record you should follow these simple steps to publish your DMARC record into your Google G Suite DNS:

Step 1

Open Google Admin Console: Login to your Google account and open Google Admin Console.

Step 2

Update your domains DNS record: Start authentication email for the domain selected above, enter the following DNS TXT record into your domain provider’s DNS settings page. Then click on the Start authenticating button. Use the DMARC record setup page from your provider to see how you implement the created DNS TXT record into your DNS providers DNS.

Step 6

Your first DMARC reports should start dripping in after 72 hours: You should now wait some time before the first reports will start to arrive in DMARC Analyzer. This is due to DNS caching and the fact that the ISPs mostly send one report each day. This can take upto 72 hours.
