How to set up DMARC for Peoplevine in Valimail

Updated over a week ago
SPF(supported) (dedicated subdomain)

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Peoplevine and how they are managed in Valimail. Because this service leverages Sendgrid's email infrastructure, it requires additions to your DNS records outside of the Valimail platform. Adding Peoplevine as an authorized sender in the Valimail platform usually requires a dedicated subdomain to be pointed to the Sendgrid infrastructure and typically the DKIM keys will be added in the Valimail platform.

Configuring DKIM authentication for your Peoplevine emails

Setting up a Domain Key (DKIM) you further identify your e-mails that they came securely from your server. In your DNS, we recommend you setup the following DNS entries:

CNAME - Host: sender - VALUE:

CNAME - Host: s1._domainkey - VALUE:

CNAME - Host: s2._domainkey - VALUE:

Important: If you manage DKIM for your domain in Valimail, you will need to add the 2 CNAME DKIM keys (s1, and s2) on your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce and the 3rd CNAME record in your DNS.

Once you have this in place, please send a request to [email protected] to setup your DKIM. Simply provide us with the email address your emails are being sent from.
