DomainKeys Identified Mail, or DKIM, is a system for confirming the legitimacy of an email message using an e-signature. When DKIM is activated for a particular domain, 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 issued using the private key and when the message is delivered, that signature is authenticated by the incoming POP3/IMAP email server using the public key. Thus, the recipient can easily discern if the message is genuine or if the sender’s email address has been forged. A discrepancy will appear if the content of the email has been changed in the meantime as well, so DomainKeys Identified Mail can also be used to make sure that the sent and the received messages are identical and that nothing has been added or deleted. This authentication system will increase your email security, since you can validate the legitimacy of the important emails that you receive and your associates can do the same with the messages that you send them. Depending on the given email service provider’s adopted policy, an email message that fails the check may be removed or may show up in the recipient’s mailbox with a warning notification.
