Making it into your prospect’s inbox is already an obstacle – the last thing any organization wants is a phishing or spoof attack dooming your email to the spam folder. One of the powerful tools in the arsenal against such threats is DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) authentication.

In this blog post, we’ll delve into what DKIM is, how it works, and why it’s essential for ensuring the integrity of your email communication.

What is DKIM?

DKIM, or DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an email authentication method designed to detect email spoofing and forging of sender addresses in email messages by adding a digital signature.

Why is DKIM Important?

  1. Protection Against Spoofing: DKIM adds a digital signature to outgoing emails to prevent bad actors from impersonating your domain.
  2. Improved Email Deliverability: Email providers use DKIM to ensure emails deliver to the recipient’s inbox, instead of getting lost in the spam folder.
  3. Brand Reputation: DKIM protects the reputation of your organization. One spoofing attack can permanently damage the trust of your contact list.
