How to set up DMARC for FormAssembly in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for FormAssembly 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 FormAssembly emails

DKIM can be set up for Enterprise Cloud and Compliance Cloud accounts.

Please reach out to FormAssembly Support if you would like to have DKIM set up for your instance. The setup process may require 1-2 days to complete. With your support request, you will need to provide your EC/CC instance URL, the email domain for which you are requesting DKIM setup as well as the DKIM selector name (which must be a single alphanumeric string ex: mydkim1, no special characters) that you would like to use.

When setting up DKIM, it is recommended that you review the following FormAssembly Admin Dashboard settings:

Admin Dashboard | Settings | General (Administrator) - Support Email and Bounce Email

Admin Dashboard | Settings | Miscellaneous (Notification Settings) - Default Notification Email and Default Notification Sender
