How to Manage e-mail Deliverability Settings in cPanel

August 28, 2023 /

In this article, we will explain how to effectively control email deliverability settings in cPanel, aiding in the mitigation of undesired emails.

What is DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM)

Here, you have the option to employ DKIM to authenticate the source of incoming email messages and detect any alterations that might have occurred during transmission. Enabling DKIM involves the sender digitally signing a message using a private key.

In this process, the recipient utilizes DNS to access the sender’s public key and verify the message’s signature. Should the signature fail validation, the message will be deemed counterfeit and categorized as spam.

Follow the following steps to manage DKIM settings:

  1. Log into your “cPanel Account”.
  2. Select “Email Deliverability” using the search tool.
  3. Choose the domain and then click on “Manage”.
  4. Within the DKIM section, you’ll find the name/value pair for the DKIM DNS entry.
  5. In the SPF section, you can observe the name/value pair for the SPF DNS entry.
  6. In the REVERSE DNS (PTR) section, the name/value pair for the PTR record entry is visible.

Alternatively, you have the option to request your web hosting provider to add a PTR record. By following these steps, you can effectively oversee email deliverability settings in cPanel.
