DKIM Records

What is DKIM?

Domain Keys Identified Mail (DKIM) records allow a recipient to validate a sender as the owner of an email message. Domain Keys use public-key encryption to apply digital signatures to email, this allows verification of the sender as well as of the integrity of the message in question. DK/DKIM records are generated by your email service provider and entered as TXT Records within Constellix. Visit the Domain Key Public Website to learn more. 

Please note if you have a TXT value that is longer than 255 characters, you will have to split the value into 2 parts using double quotations "". You will have to add both parts as your TXT record value. 

For Example: 

"String One""String Two""String Three"
