How to set up DMARC for OfficeRnD in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

  1. Navigate to Settings/My Account/Email tab.

  2. Enter your custom From Email into the From field.

  3. In the From Email field, click on Verify to let the system verify the email domain.


  4. If you get a 'This domain is not enabled' warning, click Enable to enable it and verify the new domain name.Note: You'll need to have administrative access to your domain DNS to complete the next set of steps.

  5. Sign in the DNS provider for your domain.

  6. Open your DNS records for editing.

  7. Add a TXT (SPF) record with key <domainName> and value:

    v=spf1 ~all

    If you are using multiple email servers and you want an SPF record for each of them, you should NOT set up a separate TXT record for each. Instead, you need to include the different servers in the same record. Example: v=spf1 ~all
    Please always place first. This way, it will be resolved even if the other SPF records exhibit issues.

  8. Add a TXT (DKIM) record with key rndemail._domainkey.<domainName> and the value copied from the Add DKIM record section in OfficeRnD.


  9. Set a CNAME record with key rnd-email.<domainName> and value:
