Intermax

DKIM is specified in RFC 6376, and it is used by a number of email service providers, including Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft. DKIM is designed to address some of the flaws in the existing email system, such as spoofing, phishing, and message tampering. It allows email senders to digitally sign their 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. 

Steps to Configure DKIM for Intermax

Create your DKIM key pair for your domain on Intermax instantly by using our free DKIM record generator. The duo consists of:

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

How to Get Your DKIM Public Key Available for Intermax

  1. Sign in as the administrator to your DNS provider’s administration console.
  2. Go to the DNS records section of each of your domains.
  3. Depending on the type of DKIM record that has been provided to you, generate a TXT or CNAME record.
  4. Copy and paste the hostname and value
  5. Save your record’s modifications and wait 48–72 hours for your DNS to take effect.
