Add a new DKIM Key

DKIM keys can be configured in the Valimail application. Keys used for email authentication by the DKIM mechanism should be updated periodically. Click Add a DKIM key to enter this information.

The dialog has the following fields:

  • Selector

    The selector is a unique identifier used to retrieve the public key from DNS.

  • Optional subdomain

    The public key can be associated with one of the email domains of the registered domain. Your email vendor will tell you if this is required.

  • Associated service

    if the DKIM key is to be used for email sent by a known Email Service Provider, select it from the list. Valimail strongly encourages associating keys with their respective services.

  • Comment

    If needed, add a comment here to explain the purpose and use of the DKIM key.

  • TXT

    Paste the DKIM public key into this field.


    Enter a CNAME value in this field.

  • This is a newly created DKIM key

    If selected, the system will track the age of the key so you can rotate it periodically. 

  • Only allow exact domain signing

    If selected, this inserts t=s into the DNS record. It should only be used if the Email Service Provider requires it.
