How to set up DMARC for Breadbasket in Valimail

Updated over a week ago

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

1) Login to your Breadbasket panel.

2) The SPF and DKIM records can enabled in Breadbasket when you create Addon domains.

You need to click on the button ‘Add Domain’ under the section “Domain” which will lead to you the next page. There, will be an option “Mail Validation records” and a check box next to it. Make sure it is checked, before clicking on “Add Domain” button so that the mail validation records like SPF, DKIM and DMARC will be added to the domain automatically.

Please refer the screen shot for any clarification.

3) The SPF and DKIM enable for the primary domain on Breadbasket, follow the steps that change your primary domain name. Please access the Breadbasket control panel >> Webuzo Webuzo Config:

4) After that, go to the ‘Manage Domain’ section ,then delete the primary domain and add back as Addon. At this time, the main domain that we changed earlier will change the status of a primary. It becomes a parked primary domain so that it can be removed.

5) Finished the SPF and DKIM setup for the primary domain. For checking whether its successful or not, access the ‘DNS Zone Settings’ from menu. It will display the SPF and DKIM records. Please be aware that this method will change the primary domain.

6) If the SPF and DKIM are enabled successfully, then you will see the records in the DNS Zone.
