DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication system, which blocks email headers from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching an electronic signature to every email sent from an address under a specific domain name. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP email server and it can be validated by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with modified content or a forged sender can be identified by mail service providers. This method will boost your worldwide web safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business partner, a banking institution, etc., is authentic. When you send out messages, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that appears to be fraudulent may either be marked as such or may never be delivered to the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the given provider has decided to handle such email messages.
