How to set up DMARC for Q4 Web Systems in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Q4 Web Systems and how they are managed in Valimail. Because this service leverages Sendgrid's email infrastructure, it requires additions to your DNS records outside of the Valimail platform. Adding Q4 Web Systems as an authorized sender in the Valimail platform usually requires a dedicated subdomain to be pointed to the Sendgrid infrastructure and typically the DKIM keys will be added in the Valimail platform.

Configuring DKIM authentication for your Q4 Web Systems

Q4 has selected SendGrid as partner for email delivery as they have helped thousands of companies follow email best practices to ensure maximum delivery and security. Sendgrid automatically enables DKIM for all emails to improve email deliverability.

Q4 also utilizes a set of dedicated / reserved IP addresses which are only used for Q4 clients’ emails.

To setup DKIM for your Q4 Web Systems emails, please contact Q4 Web Systems so they can turn on DKIM for your domain and provide you with the necessary DKIM records.

NOTE: If you manage you domain in Valimail, you will need to add the 2 CNAME DKIM keys on your domain's configuration page in the Valimail platform and the 3rd CNAME record will go in your DNS.
