Update your existing TXT BIMI Record to EasyDMARC's Managed BIMI Solution

1. Access Your DNS Control Panel:
  • Log in to your DNS hosting provider's control panel using your credentials.
  • Locate the DNS management section or DNS settings.

2. Find and Delete Your Existing BIMI TXT Record:
  • In your DNS control panel, locate the existing BIMI TXT record associated with your domain, The record should have "default._bimi" as its Host or Name and the values should start with "v=BIMI1".

  • Select the option to edit or delete the record.
  • Confirm the deletion when prompted.

3. Add a New CNAME Record:
  • Look for an option to add DNS records.
  • Select "CNAME Record" from the available record types.

4. Define the Host/Name for the CNAME Record:

  • In the "Host" or "Name" field, enter "default._bimi" (without the quotes). This specifies that the CNAME record is for BIMI.

5. Set the Value/Points To:
  • In the "Value" or "Text" field, you will define your BIMI record. Copy the value obtained from your Managed BIMI portal and paste it into the Value/Target section

Note: Don't copy and paste the value in the screenshot. Yours will be targeted specifically for your own domain.
Note:  If you're using Cloudflare make sure to turn off Cloudflare's Proxy Status.

7. Save the Bimi Record and "Verify" from your Managed BIMI portal:

  • After adding the CNAME record, save the changes in your DNS control panel and verify it from your Managed BIMI portal.

DNS changes may take some time to propagate across the internet. Be patient and allow some time for the BIMI record to propagate and for Managed BIMI to be active.
