How to Set Up DKIM for Blackpearlmail?

October 12, 2023  |  < 1 min read

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 Record for Blackpearlmail

To obtain your DKIM keys and enable DKIM authentication for your domains, get in touch with the Blackpearlmail support staff. You will receive a DKIM key pair from Blackpearlmail’s support that will include:

  • A DKIM public key, which must be published in your public DNS.
  • A DKIM private key, used by Blackpearlmail to sign your outgoing emails.

How to publish your DKIM public key for Blackpearlmail

  • Log in as the administrator to your DNS provider’s administration console.
  • Go to the DNS records section.
  • Depending on the type of DKIM record that has been provided to you, create a TXT or CNAME record.
  • Copy and paste the hostname and value
  • Save your record adjustments and wait 48–72 hours for your DNS to take effect.
