It is increasingly common for scammers to impersonate trusted senders in their attempts to mislead email users. This is known as email spoofing.


Email spoofing is used in phishing attempts because people are more likely to open an email when they think it has been sent by a known sender. Email scammers try to trick recipients into opening or responding to the message.

Test your email with our online tool


If you would like to know whether your email provider has adequate measures in place to protect you from scammers who may attempt to impersonate CPF Board, we have developed a convenient online tool to help you test this out.


Note: This test is only available for members who have registered their email address with CPF Board.

Disclaimer: This tool specifically tests for DMARC (Domain-based Message Authentication, Reporting & Conformance) compliance, which is an email authentication, policy and reporting protocol.


The results may be affected by the following: 

  • Email service providers may enforce their own local policies which overrides DMARC policy and place the email in the Spam/Junk folder
  • Test emails might be delayed if mailboxes are full
  • Test emails might be blocked or marked as Spam/Junk due to other email protection mechanisms such as spam filters
