Pythentic as Receiver Tests
In these tests, the client sends email messages to the Pythentic tester. Pythentic then performs test validations of the message based on any SPF, DKIM and/or DMARC RRs provisioned in the sending domain. Any other subject will not generate a test reply.
Tests against provisioned SPF/DKIM/DMARC RRs. Sender puts test command in the subject line of an email. Pythenic then returns the results of the test.
- register - Register for Pythentic Provisions tests. The Pythentic system will
register the sending address as a valid user and return a hash value used by the test
system to view results. This test is no longer needed, as any mail sent to the Pythentic
tester will result in that user email address being registered.
- spf - You provision an SPF record in the DNS; send us an email with the subject
'spf'; we reply with an analysis of your record, the recursive set of spf records
referenced, and indicate whether the message passed or failed.SPF Test
- dkim - You establish a private key and provision a DKIM record in the DNS
containing your public key; send us an email with the subject 'dkim', including a DKIM-
Signature header signed with your private key; we reply with an analysis of the signature,
and whether your message authenticates or not.
- dmarc - You provision SPF and/or DKIM records and a DMARC record in the DNS;
send Pythentic an email with the subject 'dmarc' or 'test'; Pythenic replies with SPF
results and/or DKIM results and the DMARC disposition.
