Note: This guide is specifically for adding a DKIM record when using Jilt Email Marketing. If you aren't using Jilt, get in touch with Cloudflare support for further guidance.

We covered generating your Jilt DNS records (DKIM record) along with some general guidelines in our article Can I send emails from my own domain? Here we'll take a look at adding the DKIM record to your Cloudflare domain host.

Now, let's start sending your emails with your own domain.

Add the DKIM record

1. Login to your Cloudflare account.

2. Select your domain name from the dropdown in the top left of the screen. 

3. Click the DNS settings tab.

4. From the DNS settings page, use the fields below the search bar to create a new DKIM record. To start, we'll select CNAME from the first dropdown. 

5. For Name, copy and paste the value from the Host/Name field (#1 in the screenshot below).

6. We'll use the next field, Domain name, to enter the Value/Alias To value (#2 in the screenshot below).

7. Leave the Automatic TTL (Time to Live) field as is - we'll stick with Cloudflare's default setting. 

8. Ensure that the "cloud" shown to the left of the "Add Record" button is gray. If an orange cloud is shown, click it to turn it gray:

9. Finally, click Add Record to finish adding your DKIM record.

Next Steps

You can wait a few minutes and click "Verify DKIM" in Jilt, which should verify that you've added the record successfully. In rare cases, it can take up to 48 hours to update, but if you've waited a few hours and the DKIM is still not verified, please get in touch with us so we can help.
