API Enhancements for DKIM Automation

December 2nd, 2020

DKIM, Domain Keys identified Mail, is a critical component to ensuring good INBOX delivery of email messages for day-to-day email, email marketing, and transactional email.  DKIM digitally signs outbound email so that the message recipients can verify that the messages originated from email servers authorized to send email from the sender.  I.e., it helps recipients identify and discard forged and fraudulent email messages while keeping legitimate ones.

API Enhancements for DKIM

In order to use DKIM with LuxSci, customers need to:

  1. Have LuxSci generate keys for each sending domain
  2. Update the DNS settings for each domain to publish the DKIM public key.

See LuxSci’s Help for our general DKIM setup instructions for more details.  These steps are pretty quick and easy, unless you have a large number of domains that you are sending email from.

To help such customers automate their workflow and manage their domains, LuxSci’s API has been augmented to enable management of DKIM keys for LuxSci customers.  The API now permits:

  1. Creation of new DKIM keys for new domains.
  2. Downloading the DKIM information needed for the DNS configuration.
  3. Deletion of DKIM keys for domains no longer in use.

Together with LuxSci’s other API endpoints, LuxSci customers can automate the addition and deletion of domains, email aliases, users, and now DKIM settings.  LuxSci is committed to continually expanding its API capabilities to enable and support automated workflows and processes.
