FAQ

Q1. 
I have already enabled DKIM on Google Workspace / Microsoft 365, do I still need to set it up on HENNGE Email DLP?
A1. 
Since HENNGE Email DLP will likely modify the Email in the case of Email Attachment Encryption, this would render the DKIM Signature added in Microsoft 365/Google Workspace ineffective. Therefore, if the Email Attachment Encryption feature is enabled, we strongly recommend to setup DKIM on HENNGE Email DLP as well.

Q2. 
Is DKIM a necessary configuration?
A2. 
DKIM Signature is not mandatory, but some stricter Email Servers on the recipient side are likely to check whether the DKIM Signature is correctly setup. Please assess your situation considering your company's infrastructure as well as Information Security Requirements before this setup.
