When an email is sent using DKIM, it validates the authenticity of the message through a cryptographic digital signature. This scheme uses a hashing algorithm to create a unique digital signature for an email message and validates that signature on a mail server using Domain Name System (DNS) settings. It is an email authentication standard that helps affirm the legitimacy of email messages.

After adding the DKIM record to your DNS, wait for DNS to process the changes. To verify, click on verify DKIM option. If your DKIM record is error-free and valid, you will find the verified status against your domain.
In case you don’t get the verified status against your domain, look up and validate your DKIM record using our free DKIM record lookup tool. Enable DMARC for your domain with your DMARC analyzer today!
