What is SPF and DKIM?
Email authentication methods like SPF and DKIM help to increase email delivery. While DomainKeys Identified Mall (DKIM) offers an encryption key and digital signature that confirms an email message was not forwarded or altered, Sender Policy Framework (SPF) enables email senders to specify which IP addresses are permitted to send mail for a specific domain.
