How to set up DMARC for AcyMailing in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

First of all, you will have to generate a public key and a private key.

The private key will be then added to AcyMailing and the public key will be added to your DNS records.

When you send an e-mail, AcyMailing will encode the message using the private key which can be decoded using the public key (publicly visible on your DNS).

Generate your public and private keys

We automatically generate keys during the install process so the only thing you have to do is to add a TXT entry on your DNS with the Key/Value specified on the AcyMailing configuration page.

AcyMailing will automatically use your domain name to create the DKIM. So you should not change the default value displayed in the domain field (it should be your own domain).

Add your DNS record

You should now add the generated keys in a TXT DNS record on your own DNS via your hosting company interface.

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.

Configuring SPF authentication for your AcyMailing emails

Once you establish that AcyMailing is an authorized sender for your domain, you will need to add the service in your Enabled Senders.
