Identity Verification and Configuration

Last updated: 2022-08-30 19:04:08

    What authentication mechanisms does SES support?

    SES supports all industry-standard authentication mechanisms, including DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM), Sender Policy Framework (SPF), Domain-Based Message Authentication, Reporting and Conformance (DMARC), and Mail Exchanger (MX) Record.

    How do I configure a sender domain?

    1. Click Create on the Sender Domain page.
    2. Enter a domain and click Submit.

      Note
      • sampledomain.com is a sample only and should be replaced with your sender address.
      • A domain in the sampledomain.com format is a primary domain, and one in the abc.sampledomail.com format is a non-primary domain. The following configuration steps vary depending on the domain type (primary or non-primary). See the corresponding description for details.
    3. Go back to the Sender Domain page and click Verify.
    4. Record the Record Value shown on the pop-up window.
      Note

      Below is an example. The actual content is as displayed on the corresponding page.


    5. If your domain is hosted with Tencent Cloud, log in to the DNSPod console to configure verification information. You can click a sender domain to go to the configuration page.
      Note

      If your domain is hosted with another domain service provider, configure it as instructed in the checklist.

    6. Take the primary domain sampledomain.com as an example to add records. Fill in Record Value obtained in the above step 4.
    • MX authentication
      Host record: @
      Record type: MX
      Record value: mxbiz1.qq.com.
      Note
      • For a non-primary domain, for example, abc.sampledomain.com, the Host record should be abc.
      • Make sure the record value is ended with . Some domain service providers add the . at the end of a MX record by default.
    • SPF authentication
      Host record: @
      Record type: TXT
      Record value: v=spf1 include:qcloudmail.com ~all
      Note
      • For a non-primary domain, for example, abc.sampledomain.com, the Host record should be abc.
      • If you have multiple email push service providers, you need to include domains of all these service provides in the record value, for example, v=spf1 include:qcloudmail.com include:domain1.com ~all, where domain1.com represents the domain of another email push service provider. Make sure that there is only one SPF record in your sender domain's DNS configuration.
    • DKIM authentication:
      Host record: qcloud._domainkey
      Record type: TXT
      Record value: Your record value.
      Note

      For a non-primary domain, for example, abc.sampledomain.com, the Host record should be qcloud._domainkey.abc.

    • DMARC authentication:
      Host record: _dmarc
      Record type: TXT
      Record value: v=DMARC1; p=none
      Note
      • For a non-primary domain, for example, abc.sampledomain.com, the Host record should be _dmarc.abc.
      • The DMARC record must contain the v and p flags. If you know more about DMARC, you can add other flags or modify flag values as needed.
    1. Go back to step 4 and click Submit for verification. The Current Value shows what you configured in the above DNS configuration. When the verification status becomes Verified, the configuration is completed.
    Note
    • If there is any issue after you perform configuration and verification as described above, submit a ticket.
    • If you have used the DNSPod DNS resolution, but it cannot be found by the dig command, the identity verification for the domain may have failed (so the registry stopped resolution).
