How to set up DMARC for Webpower in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

You can find DKIM records in the following places in Webpower:

  • [local_domain]: this is the domain of the sender address you want to use (Setup > Sender Addresses > FROM address > Click "Insert" to access the dropdown list of Sender Domains)

  • [license_name]: You can find this in the URL of your Webpower account: licensename.webpower.eu

Preferred DNS settings for Webpower use

DKIM record 2

NOTE: The parts [local_domain] and [license_name] are specific to you and therefore need to be adjusted.

NOTE: If you manage you domain in Valimail, you will need to add the 2 CNAME DKIM keys on your domain's configuration page in the Valimail platform and then add all the other records in your DNS.
