Unified eMail enhances their SMTP Relay Service with DomainKey/DKIM and TLS Support. TLS (Transport Layer Security) is a protocol that encrypts and delivers mail securely using PKI. DomainKey/DKIM uses Public Key Cryptography to allow the signer to electronically sign legitimate eMail in a way that can be verified by recipients.
Unified eMail announced today two major enhancements to their SMTP Relay Service:
1) All customer service plans now support TLS (Transport Layer Security), a protocol that encrypts and delivers mail securely using Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), for both Inbound and Outbound eMail traffic. TLS is rapidly being adopted as the standard for securing eMail as it helps prevent eavesdropping and spoofing (message forgery) between mail servers.
2) Corporate Service plans now support DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) Signing for both Inbound and Outbound messages. DKIM uses Public Key Cryptography to allow the signer to electronically sign legitimate eMail in a way that can be verified by recipients. Unlike some other methods, it offers end-to-end integrity from a signing module to a verifying module. DKIM can prevent spammers from forging the source address of their messages, a technique they commonly employ today.
