This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Hushmail 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.


Configuring DKIM authentication for your Hushmail emails

To setup DKIM for your Hushmail emails, please add a CNAME DKIM key on your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce.

The key should be this format:

DKIM Selector: hush

CNAME Target: _dkim.hushmail.com

Husmail Customer Care will also be happy to answer your questions is your DKIM key will not begin to sign emails.

You can also find the instructions on how to set up DKIM and SPF for Hushmail. here.
