How to set up DMARC for Uservoice in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

To set up DKIM in UserVoice, take the following steps:

  1. Navigate to General Settings -> Email Communications.

  2. In the DKIM section, click “Configure”.


  3. The default domain is Since we enforce the use of a subdomain to avoid collision and overwriting of DNS records; you may enter a new subdomain on a domain you own for sending DKIM authorized emails.
    Note: We highly recommend usage of a domain that is not already in use with a DKIM record published. For instance, if you already have DKIM configured in another platform as “” we recommend using a different subdomain for configuration.

  4. Once your domain is submitted, a DKIM and SPF key is returned. Copy each key and value and enter them in your DNS provider.


  5. Once this information has been entered in your DNS provider, the domain will need to be verified. Click "Test Connection".

  6. Once verification has been secured, click done. Enter a default “from” email address that will be used when sending emails to your customers, such as new comment notifications, public status updates, etc.
