How to Handle Your Parked Domains

It is easy to overlook parked domains (also referred to as inactive domains) when it comes to email security. After all, these domains are typically inactive and in some cases not even configured to send email. However, they shouldn’t be overlooked. Failure to take proper precautions protecting inactive domains provides unique opportunities for third parties to abuse them. For the purposes where dmarcian is involved, a parked domain is a domain that isn’t actively in use for sending email.

Are your Google Calendar Invite Responses Blocked by DMARC?

We have previously discussed the issue of Google Calendar invites (and other Google Suite services) being broken from the perspective of a G Suite owner.
