This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for CakeMail and how they are managed in Valimail. While only one of the two authentication methods is required for an email to pass DMARC, our recommendation is to configure both whenever possible.

Configuring DKIM authentication for your CakeMail emails

How to Brand your sender domain

Please send these instructions to your IT support team or your web hosting company.

Branding (please change *domain* by your domain):

link.domain.com CNAME md02.comforward.domain.com CNAME forward.md02.combounce.domain.com MX mail.md02.com (priority 10)bounce.domain.com TXT v=spf1 include:md02.com -all

Note: The records above are just an example.

After the records are published in your DNS, please contact CakeMail support so they can complete the verification.

Important: If you manage DKIM in Valimail for your domain, you will need to add the CNAME DKIM key/s on your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce and add the rest of the records in your DNS.
