What dkim txt needed for GoDaddy.com DNS entry

  • Answered
My email server is an vps server. Do I need to place dkim txt as a dns entry? GoDaddy holds my dns.
My understanding of dkim is I need to place a DNS txt entry.
See below explaination and answer.

2) Public key records:

An e-mail message signed with DomainKeys will include a header item "DomainKey-Signature" containing the cryptographic signature and a few other fields including a "selector" (s=) - for example:

DomainKey-Signature: a=rsa-sha1;
b=dydVyOfAKCdLXdJOc8G2q8LoXSlEniSbav+yuU4zGffruD00lszZVoG4ZHRNiYzR;For the receiving e-mail server to verify this signature, it must first obtain the public key for the selector value.
For above example, this is stored in a DNS TXT-record with the name "jersey._domainkey.example.com".
In other words, the name of this TXT-record is the selector (s=...) + ._domainkey. + the domain name.
The data of this TXT-record is in the format "k=rsa; p=MHww..." where value after p= is the public key.
Additional fields for granularity (g), test (t), and notes (n) may also be included (see specification for details).
