The Axigen Solution: Overview & Architecture

DomainKeys authentication can be configured by using advanced acceptance / routing rules. Axigen now implements both built-in DomainKeys and DomainKeys Identified Mail technologies.

For each DomainKeys process, signing and verifying, a SMTP filtering rule needs to be configured in your AXIGEN Mail Server, via the WebAdmin interface, under "Security & Filtering" -> "Acceptance & Routing" -> "Advanced Settings" -> click "Add Acceptance / Routing Rule".

For DomainKeys signing, the rule should be:

For DomainKeys verifying, the rule should be:

Make sure you use suggestive "Rule names" for the above rules. For example: "DomainKeys-sign" and "DomainKeys-verify".

To use DKIM technology (DomainKeys Identified Mail), similar rules can be defined. The only difference is that you need to select the actions containing "DKIM". For example: "DKIM selector" instead of "DK Selector" / "Sign DKIM" instead of "Sign Domain Key".

Please note that your DNS must be configured accordingly in order to implement domain keys signing.
