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. 

Contact Freshbooks to get the DKIM key pair in order to enable DKIM authentication. Following the acquisition of the key pair, you must publish the DKIM record using your DNS.

How to publish DKIM records in DNS

  • Access your DNS administration interface.
  • Make a TXT record in your DNS called “._domainkey” with the following format: s1._domainkey.yourdomainname.com
  • Paste the DKIM public key’s copied contents into the space designated for the TXT record value (to receive the DKIM public and private key pair, contact Freshbooks’ support team).
  • Click “Save.”

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