DKIM wizard

2 issues with DKIM txt record

x._domainkey._domainkey (INCORRECTLY GENERATED a duplicate?)
should it just be:
x._domainkey
?

"v=DKIM1; k=rsa; (INCORRECTLY GENERATED with quotation marks?)
should it just be:
v=DKIM1; k=rsa;

thanks for your advice!

May I ask are you using some online tool to generate one or copy-paste from some panel (interface)?

Usually it is an TXT record looking like:

  • default._domainkey.yourdomain.com

With the value (no quotation marks except if it is “split by” as far as I remember) like example below (or different, having more/less stuff):

  • v=DKIM1; t=s; p=very_long_hash_here

  • v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=very_long_hash_here

I would also recommed configuring SPF and DMARC too for another layer of a protection and security measurement :wink:

Some online tools for help in case if needed:

They are also commonly CNAME records.

i looked at a DirectAdmin server generated version, so here on CF should it be:

x._domainkey.mydomainname.com
or
default._domainkey.mydomainname.com
(.mydomainname.com part above is not being accepted by CF)

and

no quotation marks
v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=very_long_hash_here
(yes i have all the hash info!)

SPF and DMARC tested successfully
thanks for your help.

should it be:

x._domainkey.mydomainname.com

or

default._domainkey.mydomainname.com
UPDATE: .mydomainname.com not being accepted by Cloudflare

???

In the Dashboard you only need to enter:

<selector>._domainkey

Leave out your own domain name.
