How to Set Up DKIM for Vision6?

Vision6

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 Vision6

The following DKIM record is used by Vision6:

Type: CNAME 

Name: v6dk1._domainkey.mydomain.com

Value: dkim.v6send.net

Your Vision6 Domain Settings page is where you can get the DKIM record value. While publishing the record on your DNS, mydomain.com must be replaced with your own domain name.

How to Get Your DKIM Public Key Available for Vision6

  1. Log 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, create 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.
