Microsoft Defender for Office 365: Exchange Online Protection- Customizable Authenticated Received Chain (ARC) configuration

Email senders use authentication mechanisms like SPF, DKIM, DMARC to authenticate emails, but some legitimate intermediate services may potentially make changes to the email, which might cause the email to fail authentication at subsequent hop.
