What should I set for my DMARC policies?

Hi. I’m beta testing the new email routing feature and I was completely confused by a notice that I needed to set up DMARC policies. There was no advice as to what I should set these to, or any explanation of what the settings mean. I searched on Google (and in these forums) and I was equally confused by the information I found. Is there any help available in plain English? I just went with the defaults which are: “v=DMARC1; p=none; rua=mailto:[email address]” Will this be a problem?

That would be fine, as p=none means that message shouldn’t be quarantined or dropped.

What would it mean if it was quarantined or dropped? I don’t understand any of this. Mostly email seems to be going through, so I suppose it doesn’t matter, but then today I received this completely incomprehensible report. I’ve anonymized it and pasted it below. Does anyone know what this means?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    <email>[email protected]</email>

If I understand this correctly, emails sent via Cloudflare from Gmail that are using my own domain are to going through because of the SPF settings? This wasn’t happening before I started using Cloudflare for mail routing, so I’m very concerned…
