This article covers the SPF and DKIM authentication processes for Doppler 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 Doppler emails
Step One: Create the new Domain Name
The first thing you need to do is get into your Doppler Relay account and go to Account Settings (located on the right side of the navigation bar) and select the Domain Manager option.
Once there, you have to click on the button called Add Domain and then you’ll see the option to write the new Domain, then click the button next to it and the new domain will be successfully added to your list.
Now is time to authenticate your Domain, for that you will need your DKIM Selector and your DKIM Public Key. You can find them on the list below by clicking on the configuration icon, you’ll be redirected to a new page with all the information you need:
- DKIM Selector
- DKIM Public Key
- SPF Field
Second step: Publish the DKIM record
Create a TXT record with the name and value that appear in the administrator console of your DNS. Hosting providers use different names for the fields associated with a TXT record.
For example, GoDaddy includes fields with the name TXT Name and TXT Value, while Name.com has the same fields with the names Record Host and Record Answer.
Important: If you manage DKIM for your domain in Valimail, you will need to add the TXT DKIM key on your domain's Configuration page in Valimail Enforce and add Doppler to your Enabled Senders list.
Once you’ve done these steps, after a while Doppler Relay will show that your DKIM is validated.
