This page shows you how to set up SPF and DKIM records to your domain to verify it.

Security & Identity (IAM)

To perform certain actions described below, you must either be the Owner of the Organization in which the actions will be performed, or an IAM user with the necessary permissions.

Requirements
  • You have an account and are logged into the Scaleway console.

  • You have configured your domain with Transactional Email.

After you have configured your domain with Transactional Email, you are prompted to verify your domain by adding SPF, DKIM and MX records. You can choose to do so right after you have validated your domain, or at a later time.

  1. Click Transactional Email in the Managed Services section of the console side menu. Your newly-added domain displays.

  2. Click your domain. You are redirected to the SPF, DKIM and MX configuration page.

  3. Copy the value that applies to your case to add an SPF record.

    Important
    • If you have no SPF record on this domain, copy the following value: v=spf1 include:_spf.scw-tem.cloud -all
    • If you already have configured an SPF record, copy the following value: include:_spf.scw-tem.cloud
  4. Add a TXT record type in the root zone of your domain on your DNS zone.

  5. Paste the value you have copied in the root zone of your domain.

  6. Add an additional TXT record type in the root zone of your domain on your DNS zone.

  7. Copy the name that displays in the console.

  8. Paste the name you have copied in the root zone of your domain on your DNS zone.

  9. Copy the value that displays in the console and paste it in the root zone of your domain on your DNS zone.

  10. Add an MX record.

  11. Check the box “I have added these DNS records to my DNS zone” to confirm.

  12. Click Verify domain. Your domain displays in the list of your domains.
