How to set up DMARC for WooCommerce in Valimail

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

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

You can find the settings to turn on DKIM and SPF via Follow Up Emails -> Settings -> DKIM & SPF -> DKIM

  • Select the “Enable DKIM” checkbox

  • Input your “DKIM Domain”. For example, if your domain is https://www.Woo.com, your “DKIM Domain” would be Woo.com

  • Input the “DKIM Selector Prefix”. Use can use anything for this field. For example, Google recommends simply using a shortname for your site. In their case for Google Apps, they recommend using “google”.

  • Once you’ve filled these forms in, choose your “Key Size” and click “Generate Keys”. These keys are the items that you’ll need to input or provide to your host to finish your set up.

  • Select “Save” at the bottom of the window to save your settings. The keys will not be saved but can be generated again.

We recommend checking with your host to ensure you are setting up DKIM correctly as this can differ from host to host. In addition, SendGrid and Elastic Email customers should not activate DKIM because these providers already implement it. See SendGrid’s doc and Elastic Email’s instructions. SPF

  • Select the “Enable SPF” checkbox

  • Enter “Your Domain”. Be sure to use your fully qualified domain without the “http://” or “https://”

  • Click “Generate SPF Record” and you’ll be presented with the DNS entry you’ll need to input or provide to/with your host

  • Select “Save” at the bottom of the window to save your settings. The keys will not be saved but can be generated again.
