Email authentication is a crucial aspect of email marketing and communication, as it not only ensures deliverability but also protects against spam and phishing attacks. In Zoho CRM, you can authenticate your email domain to improve email deliverability and protect your brand’s reputation.
Why Authenticate Your Email Domain in Zoho CRM?
Email authentication involves validating the identity of the sender and the message content to prevent unauthorized use of your email domain. By authenticating your email domain in Zoho CRM, you can:
Improve email deliverability: Email authentication helps to establish a trusted relationship between your domain and email service providers (ESPs) such as Gmail, Outlook, and Yahoo. This reduces the likelihood of your emails ending up in spam folders or being blocked altogether.
Protect your brand’s reputation: Email authentication prevents cybercriminals from spoofing your email domain to send spam or phishing emails. This protects your brand’s reputation and builds trust with your customers.
