Gmail and DMARC

If you are using Gmail, as an address for one of your many online marketing ventures, then you might well be affected by this,

If you are using a free gmail, yahoo, hotmail, etc,  email account as the from address in your autoresponders,  your send/open rate could fall through the floor sometime in May if you don't change that due to dmarc rules coming into play, that gmail is finally going to follow through on.

Gmail will be moving to DMARC at any time. What this means is that if you are using a gmail,  yahoo, hotmail, etc, account as your from email, most ESP's like Yahoo, ymail, gmail will reject your email, it will not even go to the spam/trash box..


Yahoo and AOL were the first to do this over a year ago so if you were using a from mail with either one of these ESP's, your mail has been bouncing depending on how your mail provider handles your email header.

The purpose of DMARC is to prevent malicious spammers from using their domains. The best solution for any person is to use their own personal domain as the from email address.

So, we sent emails over a year ago regarding this to Your Eight Step members, and the importance as a marketer, to get a email address set up on a domain that you own.

You do not have to have a website or anything else set up on it, you can just set up the domain itself for about $15 a year, and set up an email address at first

Some autoresponders, you may still be able to use the free email accounts with, as your from address, but it will no longer show, as from your actual email address, it will use a generic, like  or

And your send reputation then will be based off the company as a whole. Which may affect your open rates and delivery.

This affects previous subscribers who filtered messages with your actual email in them, and send them to folders to read them. They will no longer go into folders, because the from address will have changed. Why its important to get your own domain, and set up an email address on it.

Personal Domain

Using your own personal domain as the from email, has many benefits. The biggest benefit is if you move to a new autoresponder provider your sender reputation remains intact which is based on your domain in part.
