DMARC name, rua, and report questions, i.e., newbie questions

I used Cloudflare’s DMARC management to create my DMARC record, but I use Exchange Online for email, which raises questions for me.

  1. Microsoft’s help file (link below) says the record name must have the domain appended to it (e.g.,, but the record Cloudflare made simply has “_dmarc”. Which is correct?

  2. The record Cloudflare made has a rua address going to them, e.g., Does the rua need to go to Microsoft?

  3. It’s been more than 24 hours and the DMARC report is missing. I don’t send a lot of emails, but I have send several since setting the record. The report’s absence leads me to believe something is setup wrong.

Thank you for helping this newbie out.

It was probably not wise to post this question before the holidays. Or I’m hoping that’s why it was overlooked.

I apologize if bumping is frowned upon.
