DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for checking the legitimacy of an email using a digital signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a given domain name, a public key is published to the global DNS system and a private one is kept on the mail server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email is delivered, the signature is checked by the POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily recognize if the message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been spoofed. A mismatch will appear if the content of the email has been edited in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the delivered emails are identical and that nothing has been attached or erased. This validation system will enhance your email safety, as you can validate the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your partners can do the exact same thing with the emails that you send them. Based on the particular email provider’s policy, an email message that fails to pass the check may be removed or may be delivered to the receiver’s inbox with a warning notification.
