DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email using a digital signature. When DKIM is enabled for a particular domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the mail server. When a new message is sent, a signature is generated using the private key and when the message is received, that signature is ‘scanned’ by the POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. In this way, the receiver can easily tell if the email is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email message has been altered in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered messages are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This email validation system will enhance your email security, since you can confirm the legitimacy of the important email messages that you get and your partners can do the exact same thing with the messages that you send them. Based on the particular mail service provider’s policy, an email that fails to pass the check may be erased or may be delivered to the receiver’s mailbox with a warning symbol.
