Zoho analyzes DMARC reports now

About 6 months ago Zoho updated their Admin Console for Zoho Mail.
It was mostly a user interface refresh, or so it looked like.
What Zoho didn't mention is that they actually added the ability to have DMARC reports analyzed automatically and view the statistics.
If you have Zoho Mail (paid plans only) the reports are here:
Documentation is here:
How do I get the reports into Zoho?
To get these reports you have to have SPF, DKIM and DMARC set up on your domain with reporting enabled.
You should have a DNS TXT record on your domain called
For example set to:
v=DMARC1; p=reject; rua=mailto:[email protected]
It looks like Zoho is snooping up reports automatically, if the receiving email set above is in your domain. We use [email protected]
What are DMARC reports?
For those that don't know, DMARC reports are the only way to detect if someone is using your domain to send out spam or malicious emails that looks like they came from your domain. Or if an email server is sending out emails that are legitimate but misconfigured - often causing the emails to end up in spam or rejected. Without DMARC reports you would never know if that happened.
The actual DMARC reports are xml files that are emailed back to you from other email providers, like Microsoft or Google. They provide information on how the receiving end analyzes incoming email looking at your DNS records for SPF, DKIM and DMARC settings and compare that to what is in the actual email.
I don't use Zoho - I use Microsoft, Google etc...
Well, normally your email provider can't help you with this.
You need to sign up with a third-party service to analyze your DMARC reports. And then they would provide the statistics for you.
Hopefully Microsoft, Google etc will follow suit and provide analysis directly in their mail admin panels.
