Notes on Capabilities

DMARC: MailChimp will use default authentication (for DKIM and SPF) unless customer configures account to use the customer's domain for DKIM authentication. MailChimp info:

DKIM: Can be configured to use customer's domain:

SPF: SPF is not possible as MailChimp uses their own domain in the bounce address. Their domain authentication verification tool requires including Mailchimp, though. To work-around this without having to include Mailchimp servers, try including only 'ip4: ip4: ip4:' in your SPF record.


When deploying DMARC, domain owners often find new sources of email.

Domain owners then wonder if the source is capable of sending DMARC compliant email.
