DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which hinders email addresses from being spoofed and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each and every message sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is created on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global Domain Name System. Thus, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety noticeably and you’ll be sure that any e-mail sent from a business collaborator, a banking institution, and so on, is an authentic one. When you send out email messages, the receiver will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s mailbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to deal with such messages.
