How to Set Up DKIM for Mailigen?

October 11, 2023  |  2 min read

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. 

You must adhere to the steps in Mailigen in order to produce the DKIM records required for email authentication. You must set up the records on your DNS after receiving them from Mailigen. Let’s look at how to Set Up DKIM for Mailgen.
