You can do this with any ONTRAPORT account level! To view complete step-by-step instructions, reference our Knowledge Base here.

WARNING: If you are not familiar with making modifications to your DNS settings we strongly recommend hiring a qualified web developer to complete this process as you can permanently lose all content, email service, etc. on that domain if other settings are inadvertently changed.

  1. Email [email protected] and let our postmasters know what domains you will be adding DKIM records to so they can make the necessary changes on their end.
  2. Log into the DNS manager of your domain registrar and add the following records:
  3. Record 1: DKIM
  4. Type: TXT
  5. Name (Selector): ontramail._domainkey
  6. Value: "v=DKIM1;k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQDiHV+GFJUPAtmIh26KHbn5PZXEFm3XK2XjEs4HFOSDZthULWyGvI5CqfYmNm7LFTWC3v5m6CtbLeNgDu0RwTw+94TSryL4ZYC6PESaJCHurmpREZTh+UFlLliRip3reqrNfoYpkiWa6fgu9vbyZob+W3d+leBP/p0mmOXeJiOjKwIDAQAB;"
  7. Record 2: SPF
  8. Type: TXT
  9. Name (selector): Blank or @ (the root domain)
  10. Value: "v=spf1 include:_spf-moon-ray.ontramail.com include:_spf-ontramail.ontramail.com ~all"
  11. Note: If you are sending email from other services using this domain you will need to add the mailing IPs of those other services in your SPF record as well. These can be added as new “ip4:” items in the value. As well, add any other mailing domains that your mail might come from in an “include:example.com” item.

  12. Record 3: DMARC

  13. Type: TXT
  14. Name: _dmarc
  15. Value: "v=DMARC1; p=none; sp=none;"
  16. Note: If you would like to be notified of emails that fail DMARC, or if someone is forging your mail, you can add “mailto:[email protected];” to the end of this record to have that address notified of failures.

To set this up you MUST be on ONTRAPORT, if you are a SendPepper or an Office Autopilot customer and waiting to be migrated you will not be able to implement this until your account has been migrated. (If you do not know what that means it does not apply to you.)

The change will only be final once you have hosted the necessary DNS records and our postmasters have confirmed that everything is in place and working correctly.

This change will also remove the “via ontramail.com” message for “@gmail.com” inboxes. Google apps users will still see this message.
