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 enable DKIM signing for your emails sent using ChargeDesk

  • Log in to the admin section of your ChargeDesk account.
  • Open Setup > Emails.
  • Click “Generate SPF & DKIM Records.”

A distinct DKIM record will be created for your domain by ChargeDesk. To enable DKIM signing for ChargeDesk, copy and paste the host and record values into your DNS. The record type will be TXT.

You must click the “Verify Records” button to confirm your DKIM record after your DNS has finished processing the modifications which take around 48–72 hours. This action must be taken.

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