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.
  • No change to your email flow will occur. Valimail will see no PII.

Note: We do not recommend pointing your DMARC record via NS to Valimail. For our Monitor users pointing via TXT will suffice.
