Please support DMARC on Mailgun and make it easy to deploy
-Please support DMARC on mailgun, and make it easy to deploy.
- Generate useful TXT entries (just like you already do for SPF and DKIM)
- Handle the DMARC reports
- Present DMARC reports in your control panel after decoding the ZIPed XML files the providers send.
- Convert DMARC failures (and successes?) into web hooks, events and log entries.
Thanks for submitting and supporting this feature request!
When sending through Mailgun you can utilize the DMARC tool by deploying it within your own API. That being said, DMARC is a highly recommend tool by our team, as noted in these articles:
Since DMARC sends reports to a specified return email, building DMARC reports into our own control panel is not a priority right now. However, it would be a great additional feature that could be added in 2019.
In the meantime, you can find easy instructions on how to utilize DMARC here: https://returnpath.com/resources/downloads/
Thanks for your patience and understanding as we review this feature and determine if it’s valuable in our current or future business structure.
-The MG Team
Added support in the control panel would be great and keep us from thinking about managing our own SMTP servers in-house. Thank you for the years of service. Onward and upward.

@Tom: PostMark do offer the same service as Mailgun but I'm not suggesting you switch. It's more that they *also* have a service to process DMARC reports in addition to their mail sending capabilities. Kind of like Google have GMail and Maps but you can still be an Outlook.com email user and use Google Maps instead of whatever Microsoft's map offering is.
I don't see the need for Mailgun to enter the DMARC report processing space (unless they want to) as it's a completely different business to sending mailshots etc. Postmark just happen to be an outlier an that they do both.
SC suggests PostMark? Huh? Don't they offer the exact service that Mailgun does? Saying we should switch to wildbit? Confused.

DMARC isn't really something for Mailgun to support... DMARC is just your domain telling recipients what to do with emails that fail to pass SPF and DKIM checks. As Mailgun do support SPF and DKIM then any DMARC policy you want to publish will work alongside their service.
I see no benefit to Mailgun creating a 'DMARC record generator' when others already exist for this. These policies can vary widely so it's not just a quick 'heres your DMARC record' blob for you to blindly cut and paste.
As for Mailgun handling DMARC reports, there may be a benefit to this but it is very likely that they'd get reports for email sent from other sources along with themselves. It's far better to have a dedicated service such as dmarcian or postmark look into this.
Although this is very highly voted I see little reason for Mailgun to enter this market. they should focus on improvements to their core business - sending email.

Great suggestion. In fact, great suggestionS -- at it touches both to initial deployment & audit.
The DMARC report stuff is somewhat related to https://mailgun.uservoice.com/forums/156243-general/suggestions/18026599-act-as-a-delegate-to-handle-dmarc-reports

Mailgun could act as a DMARC delegate to pre-processs DMARC report & providing logs or dashboard to check our domain DMARC good shape.
Currently, we have to do it manually or using some third party service provider.
This issue is somewhat related to https://mailgun.uservoice.com/forums/156243-general/suggestions/6926969-please-support-dmarc-on-mailgun-and-make-it-easy-t but focussing only on DMARC report handling.

There is always https://www.dmarcian.com/ which we use and works perfectly (with Mailgun)
