How to set up DMARC for tinyEMAIL in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

Authenticating your domain with tinyEmail is relatively simple. Complete two steps.

  1. Set up the correct records with your domain registrar.

  2. Self-sign on our site.
    Step 1: Set up your DKIM with your domain registrar.

If you own a domain and use it to send messages from tinyEmail, create a DKIM for the domain.

If you don't own a domain, contact our support team, and we'll figure something out.

You should add the following CNAME records to your DNS settings:

HOST: tec1._domainkey.YOURDOMAIN VALUE: tec1.dkim.tinyemail.com

HOST: tec2._domainkey.YOURDOMAIN VALUE tec2.dkim.tinyemail.com

Remember to replace YOURDOMAIN with your actual domain name without the http or https.

Set 2: Self-sign on our site

After creating the DKIM, return to tinyEmail and click the Account icon. Select My Account.

Click the DKIM menu tab. Now, self-sign a DKIM for your sender domain.

  1. Click the Sender domain field.

  2. Select your domain name on the drop-down menu.

  3. Click the Check link.
