How to set up DMARC for Sender in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

You can see both SPF and DKIM values in the Domains branch of the Settings section.

You need to navigate to My Account -> Sending Domains then click the Actions button on the right-hand side of the sender you wish to configure.

Include these records into your provider’s DNS settings – when you’re done with the implementation, come back to the domains section and click Verify SPF and DKIM records and Check records. If records were embedded correctly, you will see green checkmarks.

NOTE: If you manage you domain in Valimail, you will need to add the DKIM key/s on your domain's configuration page in the Valimail platform and add any additional records in your DNS.
