DKIM, which is an acronym for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being modified. This is achieved by attaching a digital signature to each and every message sent from an email address under a given domain name. The signature is issued on the basis of a private key that’s available on the outbound email server and it can be verified with a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with altered content or a forged sender can be spotted by mail service providers. This technology will enhance your web safety significantly and you’ll know for sure that any e-mail sent from a business associate, a bank, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send emails, the receiver will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email message that turns out to be bogus may either be labeled as such or may never enter the receiver’s inbox, depending on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such emails.
