How to set up DMARC for Virtru in Valimail

Updated over a week ago
SPF(not supported)

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

Your Virtru representative will send you a 40 character alpha-numeric string. Please substitute this string where it says <virtru_supplied_token> below.

Please substitute your domain where it says <> below.

CNAME Records

Created so Virtru can sign DKIM and the domain can send on behalf of your domain, please create each CNAME entry below:

Name: virtrugw._domainkey.<>



Name: virtrugw2._domainkey.<>



TXT Record

Created so Virtru can verify domain ownership prior to implementation

Name: @

Type: TXT

Value: virtru-site-verify=<virtru_supplied_token>

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