DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a method for checking the legitimacy of an email using an electronic signature. When DKIM is enabled for a particular domain, a public cryptographic key is published to the global Domain Name System and a private one is kept on the email server. When a new message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is delivered, that signature is checked by the incoming POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily recognize if the email is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been edited in the meantime as well, so DKIM can also be used to ensure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This authentication system will strengthen your email security, since you can verify the genuineness of the important emails that you receive and your colleagues can do the same with the messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails to pass the examination may be removed or may be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox with a warning flag.

As long as the domain in question uses our NS records, a private key will be created and kept on our mail servers and a TXT record with a public key will be sent to the Domain Name System. If you send regular email messages to clients or business partners, they will always be received and no unauthorized individual will be able to forge your address and make it seem like you’ve sent a certain email message.
