DKIM, which stands for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is a validation system, which impedes email headers from being forged and email content from being modified. This is done by attaching a digital signature to every email sent from an email address under a certain domain. The signature is published based on a private encryption key that’s available on the outgoing SMTP mail server and it can be validated using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email message with edited content or a forged sender can be spotted by email service providers. This approach will enhance your web safety tremendously and you will know for sure that any email sent from a business associate, a banking institution, etc., is a legitimate one. When you send out emails, the recipient will also know for sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any email that appears to be bogus may either be marked as such or may never appear in the receiver’s mailbox, depending on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such emails.
