How to set up DMARC for FireDrum in Valimail

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

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

To setup DKIM for your FireDrum emails, you need to add the following CNAME record in your DNS:

Name: fd._domainkey.mydomain.com

Value: dkim.firedrumemailmarketing.com

Note: replace mydomain.com with your own custom domain.

After adding the DKIM record, please the FireDrum support team and ask them to enable/turn on the DKIM key.

NOTE: If you manage you domain in Valimail, you will need to add the CNAME DKIM key on your domain's configuration page in the Valimail platform.
