Workplace will send emails to users of your instance, such as:
- Invitations for members of your organization to claim their accounts.
- Notifications when an organization member is mentioned in a post or comment.
Email notifications are a driver for Workplace engagement. It is essential that emails sent by Workplace are not blocked by your organization's email infrastructure.
This guide provides information on the mail servers used to send emails so that you can ensure these emails are deliverable.
Ensuring Email DeliveryEmail domains
Every single email that is sent by Workplace will originate from the domain
Your email administrator must add
fbworkmail.com as a safe sender to your email host, otherwise people in your organization will not be able to receive claim account emails and will not be able to join your Workplace instance.
Your email administrator must whitelist these email origin servers' IP addresses to ensure that your organization does not reject Workplace emails.
Verify email origin and DKIM
To prove that emails coming from
fbworkmail.com actually originate from Facebook, Workplace uses the industry standard technology DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM).
Your email administrator should configure your mail host to verify the DKIM record of all Workplace emails to ensure that you do not accept spoofed emails.Check email client spam filters
Check email client spam filters

fbworkmail.com as a safe sender.
Work with your email administrator to add the
fbworkmail.com domain to the Safe Senders list in your organization's email client for all of your people.
