DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)
DKIM is a security mechanism that validates an email, checking if emails were sent from a valid source and not tampered with during transit. DKIM ensures that emails would get delivered to the inbox of its intended recipient since the validity of the email has already been verified.
Before you send emails using an authenticated domain from Zoho Forms, you must add your domain and get it verified under Control Panel.
- Login to Zoho Forms and click your profile picture on the top right corner.
- Access the Control Panel and choose DKIM configuration as shown below:
- Enter your domain name (eg: zylker.com) and click Add Domain.
- Copy the Hostname and Host value generated.
- Now go to your DNS settings and add the Hostname and the Host value as TXT record and click Publish.
- Once done, click Verify in DKIM configuration in Zoho Forms.
- The status will be changed to Verified.
Once you complete the DKIM configuration and get your domain verified, you can use it to send emails from Zoho Forms.
- After creating a form, in your form builder, navigate to Settings > General Settings > Advanced Settings.
- Choose a DKIM authenticated domain from the Send email via dropdown.
- Henceforth, all emails for this form will be sent from the selected domain.
Note: Only if your email address contains an authenticated domain name, emails will be sent using that domain. If not, emails will be sent using the default domain from Zoho Forms.
