Hi!
I've been trying out your service and I think it's great. I am considering bringing my own domain to you, and your support has given me good information about this.
I am confused about dkim, though. Mailfence support said that once I move my domain over, they will take care of dkim signatures on their back end, and that I wouldn't need to do anything. But, don't I need to put a copy of the key in a dns txt record to make dkim work properly? Wouldn't mailfence need to provide me with some key value to put in this dns record?
Or maybe I am misunderstanding something.
Thanks!

No, you don't have to put a copy of the key in your DNS txt record. Once you create an email address with your own domain and notify us that you would like to activate DKIM signing. We will then activate it from our side so that each of your email will get signed with Mailfence domain DKIM key. This takes away the burden of DKIM key generation, managing, rotation and safe disposal of compromised or obsolete or deprecated DKIM private keys from user's shoulder.

Hi, thank you for the response. I'm confused though. Doesn't the dkim public key for a domain need to be published in the DNS record? I control my domain's DNS record, which is hosted at my domain registrar. Wouldn't I need to create a txt record with the dkim public key in order to properly validate emails sent from mydomain.com?

I have set this up with a few other providers, and that is how it always worked. Thanks again.

After you set-up your custom domain on mailfence account, and notify us that you'd like to use DKIM signing - we then add your domain name in a locally maintained list to activate the DKIM signing. All of your emails then get signed with Mailfence domain DKIM private key - this highly simplifies the whole process and make things (mentioned above) much easier for the end user.

Kind regards,
Mailfence Team.

Thanks again for your reponse.

So then given what you've described, am I correct to think that when I send an email with mailfence using my custom domain (from an address like 'user@mydomain.tld') mailfence will apply a dkim signature associated with a different domain, something like "mydomain.tld.mailfence.com" rather than for the domain "mydomain.tld"?

Cheers and Happy New Year-

Yes, a signature using mailfence.com domain private DKIM key will be applied.

Happy new year to you too.

Kind regards,
Mailence Team.
