SPF(supported)
DKIM(recommended)



This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Campaign Monitor and how they are managed in Valimail Enforce. While only one of the two authentication methods is required for an email to pass DMARC, our recommendation is to configure both whenever possible.



TABLE OF CONTENTS




Configuring DKIM authentication for your Campaign Monitor emails


1. Set up the domain you want to send from in your web host.


2. In Campaign Monitor, click your profile image at the top right, then click Account settings.


3. Click Sending Domains.


4. Click Add domain


5. In the Domain field, enter a fully qualified domain name, for example, mail.example.com. Authenticating a second level domain (for example, example.com) will not authenticate its subdomains. Once you have entered your domain, Continue.


6. You now need to add the generated DKIM key in Valimail Enforce.


7. Once you have added the records into your DNS, go back into Campaign Monitor and click Authenticate now at the bottom of the screen.

You will see a confirmation message once the domain has been successfully authenticated. The next time you create an email campaign, you will be able to select your authenticated domain when defining the sender.



You can find the instructions on how to set up DKIM for Campaign Monitor here.

Configuring SPF authentication for your Campaign Monitor emails

We encourage you to use the comment section for any useful information about your sending service, such as the name of the service owner, change request ticket numbers, etc.

Note: Campaign Monitor does not send SPF aligned emails by default.
