SPF(supported) (dedicated subdomain) DKIM(recommended)
This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for SPEKTRIX and how they are managed in Valimail Enforce. Because this service leverages Mailgun's email infrastructure, it requires additions to your DNS records outside of the Valimail platform. Adding SPEKTRIX as an authorized sender in the Valimail Enforce usually requires a dedicated subdomain to be pointed to the Mailgun infrastructure and typically the DKIM keys will be added in the Valimail platform.

Configuring DKIM authentication for your SPEKTRIX emails
To set up DKIM, or Domain Key Identified Mail please contact Spektrix Support to confirm which sending domain you would like to use. Their Support Team will assist you with generating a Domain Key.
Please note that our Domain Keys are generated in 2048-bit.
Once the DKIM key record is issued to you, you will need to publish the DKIM key on your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce.
You can also find the instructions on how to set up DKIM and SPF for SPEKTRIX, here.
