Valimail Monitor is used solely to provide our customers visibility into their DMARC data through Valimail robust DMARC reporting capabilities. Valimail Monitor does not provide the ability for customers to manage their DMARC policy and senders through SPF and DKIM configuration. DMARC policy and sender management are a few of many features of Valimail Enforce product.


For Marketers or Non-Technical Users:
In order to use Valimail Monitor, you'll first need to make some DNS changes so that you can get visibility into your domain. If you're unfamiliar with making DNS updates, we recommend sharing this article with your IT team to set this up correctly.

Follow these steps to point your DMARC record to the Valimail Cloud.

Update your _dmarc TXT record.

This allows Valimail to receive your DMARC aggregate reports.

If you already have a _dmarc TXT record: add to the "rua" parameter. Your TXT record should look as follows:

"v=DMARC1; p=none;;"

If you don't have a _dmarc TXT record: create the following TXT record in DNS:




_dmarc.<your domain name>
"v=DMARC1; p=none;;"

Example: If your domain name is, the host/name value to create for the TXT record would be

⚠️ Note:

  • If a _dmarc TXT record already exists, be sure to only add to the "rua" parameter; do not modify any other parameters in the record unless you're sure of what you're doing, otherwise you may impact email deliverability for your organization.
  • Monitor users cannot manage the DMARC record in the Monitor platform. Therefore, we strongly advise all Monitor customers to only point DMARC via TXT and not via NS.
  • No change to your email flow will occur. Valimail will see no PII.
