Updated over a week ago

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Blackbaud Award Management 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 Blackbaud Award Management emails

  1. From Site, Settings, select Content.

  2. Under Email Settings, select DMARC DNS Setup.

  3. In the Domain field, enter the domain you use to send email.

    To find the domain, go to Site, Settings, Content. From the Site Email field, copy the text that appears after @.

  4. Select Create Domain to generate your unique DNS records.

  5. From the Email DMARC DNS Settings, copy the DNS records.

  6. Access your DNS record via your domain name registrar – such as GoDaddy, Network Solutions, or – and add your unique records.

  7. Return to the Email DMARC DNS Settings screen and select Verify.
