DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a method for email senders to digitally sign email messages in a way that can be verified by email receivers. This allows receivers to verify that the message truly came from the sender, and has not been tampered with. DKIM is intended to address some of the flaws in the existing email system, such as spoofing, phishing, and message tampering. 

How to Configure DKIM for Benchmark

It is mandatory to publish the following CNAME record in your domain’s DNS to enable your email deliverability:

  • Open your DNS administration interface.
  • Go to Tools & Settings > DNS Template.
  • Add the CNAME record described below:
Name/Hostbmdeda._domainkey
DKIM record valuebmdeda._domainkey.bmsend.com
TTL value3600

Use our free DKIM record lookup tool to validate the published DKIM record.
