Did you know that DHS Binding Operational Directive 18-01 recommends strict adoption of DMARC, which affects federal agencies employees’ ability to post to Hi-Ed mailing lists? Many (if not most) federal agencies have published restrictive DMARC records already! Many Hi-Ed, including UW-Madison, as well as private institutions are also adopting DMARC at an increasing rate.
Operators of mailing lists, or any other type of SMTP forwarding server, need to know how they will be impacted by the changing landscape with forwarding email. We have created a new community where we hope that people who operate these type of services can discuss common challenges and strategies.
P.S. We’re using Google Groups because it is DMARC compatible. Feel free to use this as a conversation starter 😉
