How to set up DMARC for Dubsabo in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

Go to Settings -> Emails and scroll down to Email Deliverability to see the option to set up DKIM and SPF.

You can set up both, one or the other, or neither! Both assist with decreasing the chances of emails ending up in spam.

Setting up a DKIM record involves generating a key in Dubsado, adding that key to your domain host, and verifying that the key is working. The steps below outline how to complete this process.

Step 1: Generate a key in Dubsado

First, you’ll want to create a “key” in Dubsado. The key is how mail servers can verify emails sent from your domain name. Dubsado generates this key for you to give to your domain host, who stores this key as a DKIM record.

To generate a key in Dubsado:

  1. Go to Settings > Emails.

  2. Scroll down to Email Deliverability and expand DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM).

  3. Type in your domain name.

  4. Select a key size. 2048 is more secure and most domain hosts support it. However, you may want to check with your specific domain host.

  5. Click Generate. A TXT record name and TXT record value will populate.

  6. Copy the TXT record name and record value to use in the next step.
