In the ever-changing world of technology, email remains a central tool for business communication and collaboration. Every year, email service providers such as Google and Yahoo make updates and improvements to meet the changing needs of users and to maintain the security and efficiency of their platforms.

For 2024, both Google and Yahoo have introduced new requirements and features to improve their email services. Let’s take a look at what’s new and how it can affect users and their businesses.

In 2024, Google and Yahoo, two of the largest email platforms, are making updates and improvements to enhance the implementation and use of these standards. Let’s take a closer look at how these changes are reflected in the context of SPF, DKIM and DMARC.

Google Workspace and SPF, DKIM and DMARC:

Google Workspace places great emphasis on the security and authenticity of email messages. To this end, Google has introduced several updates to facilitate the deployment and management of SPF, DKIM and DMARC in 2024:

  2. Easier DMARC deployment: Google Workspace now offers more intuitive options for DMARC deployment and configuration. Users can use the tools available to monitor and manage DMARC reports and ensure compliance with their security policy.

Yahoo Mail and SPF, DKIM and DMARC:

Yahoo Mail, like Google, emphasises the security and authenticity of email messages. To enhance the implementation of SPF, DKIM and DMARC, Yahoo introduced the following enhancements in 2024:

  1. Facilitarea configurării SPF și DKIM: Yahoo Mail oferă acum instrucțiuni clare și simple pentru configurarea SPF și DKIM pentru domeniile utilizatorilor. The interface has been optimised to facilitate the process of implementing and managing these security standards.
