Send Email From Business Email Using DKIM Setup

    You must set up custom DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) authentication for your domains. It will ensure your emails reach your recipients’ inboxes and they will appear as sent through your branded emails and not from AiTrillion emails.

    DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) is an email authentication method it allows the receiver to check that an email claimed to have come from a specific domain was indeed authorized by the owner of that domain.

    It is a form of email authentication that allows an organization to claim responsibility for a message in a way that can be validated by the recipient.

    You can set up the DKIM settings in the app by following below steps:

    Step 1. Login to AiTrillion.

    Step 2. Go to Module Settings

     

    Step 3. Enable the DKIM Settings.

     

    Step 4. Click on Go To Settings.
