DomainKeys Identified Email prevents and deters against email spoofing, spam, and phishing attempts. DKIM works like a digital signature, so ISPs and major domains can trust your email, knowing it’s verified and legitimate. When you enable DKIM for your domains, the header of each email your company sends is digitally signed by a private encryption key. This way, all recipients have the option to verify exactly where an email came from.
To enable DKIM authentication, please contact Mixpanel to obtain the DKIM key pair. After obtaining the key pair, you will have to publish the DKIM record through your DNS.
