With Measuremail, the safety and authenticity of the e-mail traffic of our customers comes first. Every day our authentication & deliverability specialist is busy following the latest developments and trends and how we can respond to them.

The e-mail traffic sent from Measuremail is protected by default. We therefore use the open standards SPF, DKIM and DMARC. By using these standards you are sure that the mail remains authentic.

We have also added STARTTLS since this week. This security based on TLS (SSL) encrypts the exchange of e-mail between servers, with the result that external parties can no longer easily sniff through the e-mail. This means that when the mail is sent from Measuremail to Gmail, for example, the connection is closed. How this works is illustrated in the following images from Google:

Soon Google will start showing notifications in Gmail, among other things, if e-mail has been received via an unencrypted connection. The developments in the field of e-mail security and authenticity continue to grow. We continue to monitor and optimize the developments within security and authentication. This ensures that your e-mail traffic that runs via Measuremail is always protected!
