Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) enables an organization to take responsibility for a message that is on its way to the receiver. The email carries a digital signature attached in the header, which is secured with public-key cryptography; thus, it cannot be forged. DKIM helps receivers verify that the message was issued by a legitimate source.

In order to configure DKIM for elastic email, you need to create a TXT record in your DNS with the following configurations:
Record Value: “k=rsa;t=s;p=MIGf…. [use the unique record value generated for you by Elastic Email]
When done, click on the “save” button to save changes to your record, and you’re done!
Your DNS will take up to 72 hours to render the changes.
After configuring your DKIM record, don’t forget to check your DKIM record and ensure that it is without errors, using our DKIM record lookup tool. This will help you correct any configuration/syntactical errors.
