QUESTION 7: How Do I Setup My DKIM with Infusionsoft?
Clay and I received this question by so many people…we decided that we needed to do a video on this. I thought it would be easier to record me setting up my own DKIM for my domain "Bee Automated". I’m using the most common host "Go Daddy". But no worries if you have a different hosting, there are instructions at the bottom that Infusionsoft created for the top 6 domain hosts.
What is DKIM?
DKIM was created in order to fight email spam. I know it seems like another hoop to jump through, but it has good intentions. It stands for Domain keys Identified Mail. It is a complicated process by which your legitimacy as a business can be verified when you send emails out.

Why is it important for you to authenticate your business email?
When emails are sent via Infusionsoft, they are sent with a unique key in the header (You don’t see these keys). When the Email Service Provider (ex. gmail, yahoo, hotmail…etc.) receives these keys they can go and check online (in an all powerful database) to see if your key is authentic (i.e. your business is legitimate). This increases deliverabilitiy because Email Service Providers don’t have to take a chance on letting emails that are border line spammy be delivered to their users.
