After adding the DKIM TXT record in Valimail Enforce, click Verify TXT Record to ensure that the new DKIM record is publicly available and is correct.
If validation fails, then an appropriate error message displays to help you correct the problem.
After DKIM is enabled, all new outgoing email messages are signed using your new DKIM key. You can repeat the DKIM-enabling process on other supported domains.
