DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the genuineness of an email message using an electronic signature. When DKIM is enabled for a specific domain, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the email server. If a new message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is delivered, the signature is verified by the POP3/IMAP server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily know if the email is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been spoofed. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email message has been modified on its way as well, so DKIM can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or removed. This validation system will boost your email safety, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important email messages that you receive and your partners can do the same with the email messages that you send them. Based on the given email service provider’s policies, a message that fails the check may be removed or may be delivered to the recipient’s mailbox with a warning notification.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Cloud Hosting
If you host a domain in a cloud hosting account from our company, all the required records for using the DomainKeys Identified Mail functionality will be set up by default. This will happen as soon as you add the domain name in the Hosted Domains section of the Hepsia Control Panel, provided that it also uses our NS resource records. A private cryptographic key will be created on our email servers, whereas a public key will be published to the DNS database automatically using the TXT resource record. In this way, you won’t have to do anything manually and you’ll be able to enjoy all the benefits of this validation system – your email messages will reach any destination without being discarded and no one will be able to send emails faking your email addresses. The latter is pretty important in case the essence of your Internet presence involves sending out regular newsletters or offers via email to potential and existing customers.
