How to Set Up DKIM for Acquia?

October 11, 2023  |  < 1 min read

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system designed to detect email spoofing. It allows organizations to take responsibility for transmitting a message, while providing a mechanism to verify that the message was not altered during transit.  DKIM uses cryptographic signatures and public-key infrastructure to verify that an email message has not been altered during transit, and that it truly came from the claimed sender. Email senders can use DKIM to sign their messages by adding a DKIM-Signature header field to the messages. Email receivers can then use the public key published in the DNS to verify the signature and check that the message has not been tampered with. 

Steps to Configure DKIM for Acquia

  • Sign in to your Acquia account.
  • Select Email in the menu pane.
  • By doing so, the Domain Verification tab’s Platform Email page will be displayed.
  • Next, select ADD DOMAIN.
  • Enter your domain name in the Add Domain dialog box and select the ADD DOMAIN button.
  • The verification status will still be in the pending state following domain registration.
  • To view your DNS records, select the expand arrow next to the registered domain.

TXT, SPF, and three CNAME records for DKIM are also included. The records should be copied and pasted into your DNS. Wait until your verification status reads “OK” at this point. The DNS records may need to be verified for up to 72 hours.
