MessageGears

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. 

How to Configure DKIM for MessageGears?

  • Access your DNS administration interface.
  • A TXT record with the label “selector”._domainkey.yourdomainname.com” should be created in your DNS system, for instance: s1._domainkey.yourdomainname.com
  • Paste the copied DKIM public key contents in the section designated for the TXT record value (the DKIM public and private key pair will be provided by MessageGears on request)
  • Click “Save.”

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