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

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

1. You can find the configuration information of the corresponding domain name in the Direct Mail console and obtain the record value.
