If your email is being tampered with, spammed or the content of the message has been altered, you may have a problem with Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM). DKIM is an authentication method which requires that you digitally sign messages using public key cryptography.
By default, DKIM is not enabled on EveryCloud. You can enable it with the help of EveryCloud’s support team for free.
Enabling DKIM Signing for outbound emails on EveryCloud
In order to enable DKIM signing for your domains on EveryCloud, you need to set up a CNAME record to refer to the public key in EveryCloud's DNS.
Pointing to: hse._domainkey.everycloudtech.com
Save the record
Note: Please replace yourdomainname.com with the name of the domain you want to configure DKIM for. If you only want to use DKIM to authenticate only your incoming emails you do not need to publish the CNAME record on your DNS.
When done there are the few more steps you need to go through to complete the activation process for DKIM on EveryCloud.
- Send an email with the subject Enable DKIM to firstname.lastname@example.org and make sure that you include the following information:
- List of domains you want to activate DKIM for
- Mention whether you want to use DKIM for signing and validation, only for validation (incoming emails only) or only for signing
- A verification that you have set up the aforementioned CNAME record(s) for your domain(s)
Following activation your outbound email will be signed with a crypto key in the header before leaving EveryCloud’s email sending server.
