Find Out How LISTSERV Can Help You Comply with DMARC Requirements
By Nathan Brindle
Senior Product Engineer, L-Soft
The recent issuance of the U.S. BOD 18-01 includes in its checklist for compliance a requirement for U.S. government agencies to implement the DMARC p=reject policy for all second-level domains and mail-sending hosts no later than October 16, 2018. To properly comply with BOD 18-01, L-Soft recommends that all such affected agencies should upgrade to LISTSERV 16.0-2017a, the latest release version.
