How to set up DMARC for Payroll Support in Valimail

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

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Payroll Support 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 Payroll Support 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 Payroll Support emails

  1. Go to Payroll settings -> Email Sender Authentication.

  2. Click on the Add button (or follow the 'add a new DKIM authentication now?' link)

  8. If you've created the records correctly, the domain will be Validated.

Once your domain has been Validated, any email we send for you on your behalf that uses that domain as the From Address will be signed with DKIM, and will have a very good chance of being delivered to recipient's Inboxes.
