How is DKIM Record Checker Useful?

Working together with SPF and DMARC, DKIM allows organizations to authenticate emails, safeguarding their outbound email traffic. Correct implementation and configuration of a DKIM record is essential for ensuring the security of your domain and keeping spoofers at bay.

How Does DKIM Work?

When you’ve implemented the DKIM record, the sending server signs all your outbound emails with a unique key. This key includes the body and various important headers like To, From, the date and the subject. Also known as a signature, this key is added to the emails as an extra header, allowing receiving mail servers to verify it and authenticate the emails.

There is a public part of this key, which is published in the DNS. The receiving mail servers can use this public key and the signature in the email to verify whether or not the email was modified after it was sent.
