Customer.io

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. 

Steps to configure a Sending Domain for Customer.io

  • Sign in to your Customer.io account as the admin.
  • Go to Settings > Workspace Settings.
  • Select Email Settings > Add Sending Domain.
  • Click Add Domain after entering the Domain, Display Name, and Email Address from which you want to send messages as illustrated below.
