DKIM Key Compliance Report
Updated over a week ago

The DKIM Key Compliance Report serves as a comprehensive tool within Valimail's services, enabling users to monitor and maintain the health of their DKIM (DomainKeys Identified Mail) records. This report provides valuable insights by tracking key aspects such as the overall status and effectiveness of DKIM records, the age of these records (based on the upload date in Valimail), and the key length in bits.

By offering a clear view of these critical factors, the DKIM Key Compliance Report empowers users to ensure the security and reliability of their email authentication, enhancing the integrity of their digital communications.

DKIM Key Health

The DKIM records that are more than two years old will lower the DKIM health score. We recommend rotating TXT and CNAME records at least once every two years. To rotate the DKIM records for Microsoft Office 365 and Google Workspace, please refer to this article. For help with rotating the DKIM records for other sending services, please reach out to the support of that service.
