Customers using Gmail through the REW backend
One of Real Estate Webmasters’ top priorities is customer success
and we understand that in the real estate business, email is an
important tool you use. This is why we are informing you of a
change that Gmail is making that may impact you.
Effective June 2016, Gmail will be changing its DMARC policy from
"none" to "reject". This means that emails sent through Gmail from
anything other than Gmail’s own infrastructure may be rejected. The
impact to you is that any emails, sent through an agent or admin
profile using an @gmail.com email, may fail. The good news is that
there are a few solutions for you. The best thing to do is simply
no longer use your Gmail account for these purposes. You can still
use Gmail as your personal email, but with your website, you'll
need to look into other options.
Keep in mind that other “free” email providers like Yahoo and AOL
have already changed their DMARC policy to “reject” and it is
expected that other providers will eventually follow.
This seems like the perfect opportunity to get new professional
emails branded to your domain.
There are many companies you can get email through, some of these
are as follows.
Once you've chosen the new email provider and set it up, just
remember to notify us which provider you've chosen, as there are
DNS records that we will need to enable in order for your new
emails accounts to sync properly with your domain name. This is a
process we are more than happy to assist with, simply email:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-753-9893 and a
member of our awesome support team will get this done.
Lastly please keep in mind that this change does not affect just
REW customers. This is a global change that Gmail is making and it
will alter any websites/programs that you're using with your Gmail
If you have any questions or concerns regarding this please feel
free to leave a comment below or contact our support department and
we will assist you in any way we can.
