Domain Key / DKIM Generation Wizard

This wizard will generate the public / private 1024 bit key pair you will need to setup DomainKeys/DKIM and will give you specific instructions on how to setup Hurricane Server and your DNS server.

You must specify a domain and a selector. The domain and the selector are not used in the generation of the public / private key pair. They will only be used to provide server and DNS setup instructions specific to you.

DomainKeys validate that the domain of the from address matches the domain that is sending the message. DomainKeys do not validate the domain of the return path. You must specify the domain that you will use in the from address (From: header) of your messages. (If you will be sending out mail from multiple domains, you will need to go through this process for each one.)

A single domain can use more than one set of DomainKeys. You must specify a selector which will be used to specify (or “select”) the set of DomainKeys you will be using to sign your messages. If you are only going to use one set of DomainKeys, it does not matter what you enter and you can use something like “key1″.

DomainKeys Generated!

Your keys have been generated. Please note that each time you press the generate button, a new and unique public/private key pair is generated. The public key from one pair is not compatible with the private key from another generated pair.
