SPF(not supported)

This article covers the DKIM authentication processes for Odoo and how it is managed in Valimail Enforce. 

Odoo does not support SPF alignment.


Configuring DKIM authentication for your Odoo emails

When sending an email, the Odoo server includes a unique DKIM signature in the headers. The recipient’s server decrypts this signature using the DKIM record in the database’s domain name. If the signature and the key contained in the record match, this guarantees that the message is authentic and has not been altered during transport.

To enable DKIM, add a CNAME record to your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce:

Selector: odoo

Value: odoo._domainkey.odoo.com.

You can then check to see if the DKIM key has been published, using a tool like Google Admin Toolbox Dig.

You can also find the instructions on how to set up DKIM for Odoo here.
