DKIM(recommended)

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

Your DKIM setup should be taken care of automatically when you set these CNAME records:
