DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which obstructs email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is done by attaching an e-signature to every message sent from an email address under a given domain. The signature is published based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with modified content or a spoofed sender can be identified by email providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety greatly and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business collaborator, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send email messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be forged may either be tagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such email messages.

This will happen the moment you add the domain name in , as long as your domain also uses our NS resource records. A private cryptographic key will be generated on our email servers, whereas a public key will be added to the DNS system automatically by using the TXT record.
