DKM Record

I’m trying to setup a DKM record but having no luck.

I have been sent the following as an example

Hostname: default._domainkey

Record type: TXT

Value: v=DKIM1; k=rsa; s=email; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQC0SXzBGHoJcBVKyNEntvTiMtoSIH4uiuY6i5hzF47

+e8AD7eo42A/pYdgZxL9KRyZbMsCtHJrAqvYB6LZP0SFVvkYQIDAQAB

I have setup a TXT record with default.domainkey and entered the value with and without quotes but I cannot get a DKIM record checker to validate the record.

Any idea’s ?

Thanks.

How long ago did you set it up? I ask because depending on your mail provider and the way DNS records propagate, it may take awhile (generally a few hours but it can be up to 24 or so) for your DKIM to be enabled.

It may be a propagation issue like @intr0 mentioned.

But often the DKIM is there, except different online checkers expect different values to check. Try:

default._domain.key.example.com on dnschecker.org OR
default only (no dot) as the selector on dmarcian.com/dkim-inspector/

This is true. Whereas ProtonMail does has a built in records checker from start to finish for all mail records in DNS. Highly recommend.
