Don’t wait to comply with these impending requirements if you don’t want to start “losing” emails along the way due to deliverability issues.

Key dates and who these changes will affect

Google and Yahoo’s new authentication and spam prevention requirements will take effect in February 2024.

Understanding the new requirements of Google and Yahoo

Best practices for mass mailers are now required for delivery on Google and Yahoo. These changes are designed to improve deliverability, build trust and credibility, avoid spam filters, optimize sender reputation, and ensure uninterrupted communication.

What is DKIM and DMARC?
  • DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) is an email authentication method that uses public key cryptography to digitally sign emails.
  • DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) is an email security standard that helps domain owners monitor who is sending email on their behalf.

By 2024, email authentication will no longer be an option: it will be a Google and Yahoo requirement for all senders

  1. Enable e-mail authentication: Configure DKIM authentication and a basic DMARC record.
  2. Transition from @gmail to your own domain: To align with the upcoming changes, it is vital to stop using email addresses and transition to your own domain.
  3. Keep spam complaints below 0.1%: Google is imposing a limit on the spam rate for senders.
