DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is a validation system used to check that an e-mail message has been sent by an authorized email server or individual. An e-signature is attached to the header of the email message by using a private cryptographic key. When the email message is received, a public key that’s available in the global DNS database is used to check who actually sent it and if its content has been modified in some way. The principal job of DomainKeys Identified Mail is to stop the widespread scam and spam emails, as it makes it impossible to fake an email address. If a message is sent from an address claiming to belong to your bank or financial institution, for example, but the signature doesn’t match, you will either not get the email at all, or you’ll get it with a warning notice that most probably it is not genuine. It depends on email providers what exactly will happen with an email that fails the signature test. DKIM will also give you an additional layer of security when you communicate with your business partners, for instance, as they can see that all the messages that you send are legitimate and haven’t been meddled with in the meantime.
