I have the following DNS entry for one of my clients email servers:

_dmarc IN TXT "v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:postmaster@example.com"

This is the only email server I'm administering, which has a DMARC DNS entry - in other cases SPF and DKIM was always sufficient for the email server to work fine.

The annoying thing is that I receive multiple DMARC reports from Gmail, Yahoo, etc. ervery day and I don't need them. How can I stop receiving those DMARC reports?

Should I just remove the rua part of the DNS entry?


Sure. Just remove it. "rua" is optional as per RFC.


  • Could you be please so kind and show me the part where it is exactly? I can't find the part which says, that "rua" is optional. Thank you in advance! – manifestor Oct 20 '19 at 10:17
  • Page 19. rua: Addresses to which aggregate feedback is to be sent (comma-separated plain-text list of DMARC URIs; OPTIONAL) – Vadim Oct 20 '19 at 21:54
