Mailazy’s Platform – Email Authentication and Security

Mailazy is a comprehensive transactional API service for your everyday business. You can send OTP, product updates, delivery updates, forgotten password links in seconds, without thinking about it. Authentication and delivery are at the heart of Mailazy Transactional Email Platform. The authentication process is mandatory to start sending messages, and monitoring delivery ensures that those messages will continue to reach your customer’s inbox quickly.

Authentication requires adding a sending domain to the Mailazy platform. Mailazy platform then generates records to configure your DNS for DKIM and SPF authentication, and then verifies that everything is working as expected.

Email Authentication

Authentication is to prove that an email isn’t fake or forged. Mailazy Transactional Email Platform automatically authenticates every email sent through our servers and by adding DNS records to your domain, It can send on your behalf and digitally “sign” your emails.

Many ISPs like Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook are using authentication to track sending reputation, and since authentication is handled by your domain, you can have some control over the emails that affect deliverability of your domain.

A good reputation builds trust with the ISPs and improves deliverability and reduces the chance that your emails are caught by spam filters. It also improves the chance of how quickly the receiving servers will accept mail from your domain.

You’ll need to add SPF and DKIM records to your DNS and verify ownership of your sending domains in order to send the emails from the system. No one is able to send any email from Mailazy Transactional Email Platform with unverified domains without valid SPF and DKIM records. This will prevent others from sending emails from your domain.
