Help Scout DKIM update

Hi, we got the following email from Help Scout. I’m not sure if it applies to both of our instances, or only one of them. The records need to be updated by October 16th.

As of October 16th, 2023 we will no longer be relying on SPF authentication tied to your domain when using Help Scout servers to send email as your custom email address. We are moving to a method with a focus on DKIM instead, to both modernize our infrastructure and align with industry best practices.

You’re receiving this message because your domain(s) currently has a DMARC record set to p=reject, but does not have the CNAME records to allow DKIM authentication for emails sent from Help Scout. If you do not take action before we make these changes, emails you send from Help Scout will be rejected by many email servers as they will no longer be DMARC aligned.

To continue using Help Scout servers to send emails as your domain, you’ll need to create a couple of CNAME records at the DNSDNS DNS is an acronym for Domain Name System - how you assign a human readable address to a website’s exact numeric coded location (ie. uses the actual IP address provider for your domain so that recipient servers can authenticate the DKIM signature on emails you send from Help Scout.

You’ll need two CNAME records:

strong1._domainkey.[yourdomain] should point to
strong2._domainkey.[yourdomain] should point to

Our article Use DKIM to Help With Email Deliverability has a bit more information if you need it.

Alternatively, you may choose to set up your Help Scout mailbox to connect to your email provider to send email, instead of sending from our servers. You do not need to make changes to your DNS records if you choose to change the sending method.

Our article Outgoing Email Settings explains a bit more about the different options and has links to help with setting up the connection to your provider.
