This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Emfluence 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 Emfluence emails

Emfluence issues a 2048bit TXT DKIM key to sign emails on behalf of your domain.

In order to setup DKIM in Emfluence for your domain, please reach out to support@emfluence.com to get started.

You can also find more on how to set up DKIM and SPF for Emfluence, here.
