How to set up DMARC for Deskpro in Valimail

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

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

This guide is intended for Deskpro Cloud users who want to use custom email addresses at their own domain (such as [email protected]), but still want Deskpro to handle all outgoing email.

To improve deliverability of your messages, you need to modify your DNS so ISPs know that we are authorised to send mail on your behalf. If you don't carry out these steps, outgoing emails may be marked as spam by email providers.

Consult your server administrator if you don't know how to change your DNS settings.

Set up DNS records

To set up SPF and DKIM on your custom email address domain, you'll need to add the following records:

Type
​

Host
​

Value
​

CNAME

dpmail.yourdomain.com

email.deskpro.com

CNAME

dpc._domainkey.yourdomain.com

dpc._domainkey.deskpro.com

CNAME

dpc2._domainkey.yourdomain.com

dpc2._domainkey.deskpro.com

After adding these records, get in touch with Deskpro to finish the process of setting up your domain for DKIM and SPF.
