ACSP Suggestion 2021.5: Support DMARC for ARIN-originated Emails and ARIN Mailing Lists

Description: Support DMARC for ARIN originated emails and ARIN mailing lists

Value to Community:

More and more environments are starting to reject or quarantine emails that are not DMARC compliant. Proper DMARC compliance by ARIN would not only alleviate this issue, it’s a generally good thing for email overall.

DMARC takes the capabilities in SPF and extends them to be a far more effective tool for fighting SPAM and preventing Joe Jobs and Phishing.
