DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication system designed to detect email spoofing. It allows organizations to take responsibility for transmitting a message, while providing a mechanism to verify that the message was not altered during transit.  DKIM uses cryptographic signatures and public-key infrastructure to verify that an email message has not been altered during transit, and that it truly came from the claimed sender. Email senders can use DKIM to sign their messages by adding a DKIM-Signature header field to the messages. Email receivers can then use the public key published in the DNS to verify the signature and check that the message has not been tampered with. 

Steps to Configure DKIM on Moonmail

You must include CNAME entries in your DNS in order to activate DKIM for your domains on Moonmail. You can do this by taking the actions listed below:

  • Log into the administration area of your domain registrar.
  • Navigate to Domains and select Manage.
  • Click on Edit CNAME (Domain Aliases) Records in the Advanced Settings after opening them.
  • Enter the MoonMail-provided alias name in the Alias field.
  • This name ought to refer to the record value that MoonMail offers.
  • Save any modifications to your file.

If DKIM was successfully enabled for your domain name, identify it on MoonMail and click on “Check Status.”
