DKIM/SPF E-mail Help

Posted February 23, 2019 1.6k views

First time trying to do e-mail. Been reading about DKIM and SPF but not really understanding it. Is there a clear guide on how to use it? Is this the best option for me?

I’m installing Discourse but my e-mails are not delivering, which means I can’t get it set up.

Thank you for your patience and assistance!

Hey friend,

You might consider either setting Discourse to use an external SMTP service to send the emails or running a mail server with a preconfigured setup like this:

As far as handling DKIM for you goes, it doesn’t get much easier than that. Email is a headadche these days, any way that you can delegate that work through something like mailcow (or iredmail, etc) can lighten your burden significantly.
