How to set up DMARC for HappyFox in Valimail

Updated over a week ago
SPF(supported)
DKIM(recommended)

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

There are 3 steps to enable DKIM in your HappyFox HelpDesk Account

Step 1: Setting up SPF in your DNS record

You need to make sure that you have setup SPF [Sender Policy Framework] in DNS for outbound emails. Please refer this KB article for instructions.

Step 2: Updating DNS records

HappyFox Helpdesk Accounts in US Data-Center [accounts with account url ending with '.com']

For each domain to which you want to send emails via HappyFox (such as example.com - these are the domains that you use HappyFox to send emails out from), you need to update the CNAME records in the DNS records of your Domain Hosting Provider.

CNAME happyfox1._domainkey.example.com to happyfox1._domainkey.happyfox.com

CNAME happyfox2._domainkey.example.com to happyfox2._domainkey.happyfox.com

HappyFox Helpdesk Accounts in EU Data-Center [accounts with account url ending with '.net']

For each domain to which you want to send emails via HappyFox (such as example.net - these are the domains that you use HappyFox to send emails out from), you need to update the CNAME records in the DNS records of your Domain Hosting Provider.

CNAME happyfox1._domainkey.example.com to happyfox1._domainkey.happyfox.net

CNAME happyfox2._domainkey.example.com to happyfox2._domainkey.happyfox.net

Note: If you are not sure which data center your HappyFox account is hosted in, please reach out to your account administrator.

Step 3: Enabling DKIM

Reach out to [email protected] once the above steps have been completed and we will enable DKIM for your account.
