Note: If Intercom has not been approved, please do so now by selecting it from the ‘Service Name’ dropdown. For full instructions, read the ['Adding a service' guide].




2. Generate the DKIM keys by logging in to your Intercom Admin Console and follow this Intercom help article.


3. Return to Valimail Authenticate and click on Intercom in the Approved Sender list.



4. Click on ADD DKIM KEY



5. Fill out the information in the add a DKIM window, the selector by default will be intercom, and the DKIM key usually in the form of a CNAME target.
