DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which prevents email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding an e-signature to each email sent from an email address under a particular domain. The signature is generated based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified by using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any email message with changed content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This technology will strengthen your worldwide web security significantly and you will know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, and so on, is authentic. When you send out email messages, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that turns out to be phony may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, based on how the given provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
