DomainKey Identified Mail (DKIM) and Sender Policy Framework (SPF) are two methods that can protect you from email spamming, spoofing, and phishing attempts.
- SPF method allows you to specify which email servers are legitimate servers for your domain.
- DKIM method allows you to attach a DomainKey signature to your outgoing mail. The receiving server then verifies the validity of the key and either accepts or rejects the mail.
SPF and DKIM are frequently used in combination because they attack email problems from two different angles.
