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 DKIM for Engaging Networks

  • Sign in to your Engaging Networks account
  • Go to Email > Settings > Domain Authentication
  • Find your registered domain and select “Validate”
  • This will verify your domain’s DNS to see if it has been authenticated.
  • Your DNS records, including DKIM, should now appear on your screen with either a green valid state indicating that the records are valid and published on your DNS, or a red invalid status informing you that the records need to be published.

Please note that the screenshot above is simply being used as an example. Please substitute your registered domain name for mydomain.com.
