How to set up DMARC for Appian Cloud in Valimail

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

This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Appian Cloud 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 Appian Cloud emails

  1. In the Administration Console, under INTEGRATION, select Email.

  2. Go to the Email Sender Authentication tab.

    /admin-email

  3. Click New Sender Domain Authentication.

  4. For Sender Domain, enter the email domain to authenticate, such as example.com, then click Authenticate.

  5. To complete sender domain verification, create the DNS record for the domain using the DKIM DNS record that displays.

    • If the DNS record isn't ready to be verified, click VERIFY LATER. You can verify the DNS record at a later time by going back to the Email Sender Authentication tab and clicking the Domain name.

    • After the DNS record has been created, verify the created record by clicking VERIFY NOW. If verification is successful, the verification status of the domain will be updated and emails sent from the authenticated domain will be signed.
