How to set up DMARC for Mailfence in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

  1. Go your account Settings -> Messages -> E-mail domains.

  2. On your domain name entry, Click on DKIM.

3. Choose the size of DKIM key:

spoofing defense

It is recommended to use 2048 bits DKIM key pair.
In case if your domain-name/hosting or DNS service provider does not support long DNS TXT values, then choose 1024 bits.

Note: This option will not appear after you click on Validate.

spoofing defense

Click on Copy to directly copy the whole value for each of the field.

4. Once the respective DNS TXT record has been successfully included, click on Validate.
