Easily DKIM-Sign Your Emails with Amazon SES

Posted on: Jul 17, 2012

Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES) is excited to announce support of Easy DKIM – an easy way to DKIM-sign the email you send via Amazon SES.

DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) allows you to associate your domain reputation to an email message and assert that the message’s contents did not change in transit. Previously, you had to DKIM-sign your messages yourself and exclude certain headers, which could be challenging. With Easy DKIM, Amazon SES takes care of DKIM-signing your email for you, and all you have to do is add some CNAME records to your DNS and enable signing.

You can administer Easy DKIM entirely through the AWS Management Console, and, if you use Amazon Route 53, you can create the CNAME records with a few clicks of your mouse. All of this is also available via three new API actions, so you can choose whether to set Easy DKIM up via the AWS Management Console or programmatically.

We encourage you to try this new feature today, and let us know what you think by visiting the Amazon SES forum. For more information, please refer to the Amazon SES Developer Guide.
