What is a DKIM record?

DKIM stands for DomainKeys Identified Email. Its purpose is to prevent email spoofing and spam.

This digitally signed authentication method was created to prove the legitimacy of the email sender and the server from which the email originates.

When DKIM is enabled the system will create unique public and private key pair used for signing your outgoing messages. After your message is sent the receiving email server will extract that digital signature and will apply local policies based on the results of the signature test.

More on the configuration of the DKIM can be found in the following article:
