How to set up DMARC for Kerio Connect in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Kerio Connect 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 Kerio Connect emails

To sign messages with a DKIM signature:

  1. Enable DKIM authentication in your domain settings.

  2. Add the DKIM public key to your DNS settings.

Enabling DKIM in Kerio Connect

  1. In the administration interface, go to section Configuration > Domains.

  2. Double-click your domain and go to tab General.

  3. Enable option Sign outgoing messages from this domain with DKIM signature.

  4. Save the settings.

To see which domains have DKIM enabled, add column DKIM enabled in section Configuration -> Domains.

Your DNS records must include the DKIM public key for your domain.
