How to Set Up DKIM for SpamExperts?

 

DKIM is a standard authentication practice that helps domain owners verify their legitimacy and ensure the safe transfer of emails. This mitigates the risk of spam, even for forwarded emails. Email authentication is a must-have security measure that organizations are required to implement due to the rising threat of cyberattacks and brand impersonation.

Generating DKIM Key Pair:

To enable DKIM signing, you will have to generate the DKIM key pair. Follow these steps to generate the DKIM key pair:

  • Go to the Domain Level Control Panel and select Outgoing > DKIM.
  • Choose DKIM Key Length according to your DNS standards.
  • Enter the DKIM selector of your choice and then click on Generate and save new private/public pair
  • Once the key has been generated, copy it to clipboard.

Publishing DKIM key through DNS:

  • Log in to your DNS management console
  • Create a TXT record in your DNS with the title : ._domainkey. for example: s1._domainkey.yourdomainname.com
  • In the section allotted for the TXT record value, paste the copied contents of the DKIM public key
  • Click Save.
  • Lookup and validate the published DKIM DNS record using this free DKIM record lookup tool
