    How does DKIM record work?

    Every day, spam is more present, annoying, and dangerous! It’s not only about an undesired bunch of messages taking your inbox space. Nowadays, opening the wrong message and clicking its images or downloading its files could be like opening Pandora’s box! Phishing attacks, malware, and all sorts of scams could be attached to it.

    What is the DKIM record?

    DKIM record or DomainKeys identified mail is a security standard for domains to sign outgoing e-mails through cryptographic authentication. This way, domains can demonstrate the e-mails sent from their side are legit. Therefore they can be trusted. Besides, the DKIM record secures messages to avoid being altered while they are in transit (sending server-recipient server).
