DKIM, which is short for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being meddled with. This is achieved by adding a digital signature to each email sent from an address under a certain domain name. The signature is issued based on a private encryption key that is available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. In this way, any message with edited content or a spoofed sender can be recognized by email service providers. This method will heighten your worldwide web safety tremendously and you will be sure that any message sent from a business ally, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out messages, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that turns out to be forged may either be flagged as such or may never appear in the receiver’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has chosen to cope with such messages.
