#2726 closed task (fixed)

DKIM and DMARC for,

Reported by: robe Owned by: sac@…

Component: SysAdmin Keywords:


Mail providers are now requiring DMARC and DKIM as an extra precaution against spam.

I've enabled DMARC reporting in #2721. This ticket will change the email it is being sent to -- right now it sends to sysadmin+dmarc which ends up sending to all sysadmins.

The next part is configuring DKIM which requires keys to be setup on osgeo6 to handle.

I've configured DKIM on osgeo6 now so the mails should be signed now, but I think there might be a lag on when we see that. I published the public key in pairsdomain.

Okay I think it might be working. I just got notice after submitting this ticket and looking at the headers, it now shows DMARC as passing. Hopefully this will reduce the number of issues with people getting emails.

Just realized past records show DMARC success too and test message is not showing as signed. So I think there is something I am missing in my configs.

Testing again - ignore this.
