Cant add DMARK to sub domain

I created a DMARC TXT record to use with a subdomain mail.ddallen.com

However, MX Toolbox says the DMARC is attached to the parent domain ddallen.com and not the sub-domain.

There doesn’t seem to be any way to create records for sub-domains in Cloudflare. You can only set DBS up for parent names. Is this correct?

Create a record for _dmarc.mail.ddallen.com (enter _dmarc.mail in the dashboard when creating the TXT record).

If you are in wanting to publish a DMARC policy that will apply to mail.ddallen.com addresses and not ddallen.com addresses, you should be all set if you use the label that @sjr described.

Thanks for this. Unfortunately every email I send and receive to the parent domain started getting blocked to day and its pretty much shut my business down. I’m removing anything to do with DMARC.
