Enabling DKIM signing for your domains can help you keep your email content intact throughout the delivery process, barring threat actors from accessing and altering your emails. This helps preserve your identity and eradicate spam and phishing attacks.
Creating DKIM Record for iOmart
Contact your iOmart support team to get your DKIM keys and enable DKIM authentication for your domains. iOmart’s support will hand you over 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 iOmart to sign your outgoing emails, that is to be uploaded on their web server
Alternatively, if you are using your own servers to send emails instead of iOmart’s, you can generate your DKIM key pair using our free DKIM record generator tool.
