DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a method of verifying that the senders of messages are authorized. Specifically, it verifies that outgoing emails are from the source they appear to be from, and have not been altered during transit.
Creating DKIM Record for Seeweb
A DKIM key pair that will contain:
- A DKIM public key: to be published in your public-facing DNS
- A DKIM private key: used by Seeweb to sign your outgoing emails, that is to be uploaded on their webserver
If you are using your own domains registered on Seeweb to send emails to your clients, you can generate your DKIM key pair using our free DKIM record generator tool.
