DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for validating the genuineness of an email message by using an electronic signature. When DomainKeys Identified Mail is activated for a specific domain, a public key is published to the global DNS database and a private one is stored on the mail server. When a new email message is sent, a signature is issued using the private key and when the email message is received, the signature is validated by the incoming POP3/IMAP mail server using the public key. Thus, the receiver can easily recognize if the email message is authentic or if the sender’s address has been forged. A mismatch will occur if the content of the email has been altered in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received email messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This validation system will increase your email security, as you can confirm the genuineness of the important emails that you get and your associates can do the exact same thing with the email messages that you send them. Depending on the particular email service provider’s adopted policies, an email message that fails to pass the examination may be erased or may show up in the recipient’s inbox with a warning flag.
