Google Apps adds email authentication for free to ensure email doesn’t end up in spam folder – computer spam help

We’re always worried about receiving too much computer spam On the flip side, we have to make sure our emails are delivered as well without mistakenly ending up in someone’s spam folder.  Google has implemented a free tool for its Google apps business computer users that ensures each email is digitally signed so that the recipient is able to authenticate the sender’s identity. 

This email authentication tool, called DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) comes in handy for those computer networks that use an intermediary company to send mail.  For instance, if a company uses its own exchange server, but has Godaddy as its host, some recipient servers may flag that as possible spam due to thinking the secondary Godaddy server is a spambot.  Similarly, if a server has a different host acting as a spam filter, this may also flag some recipient servers as a possible spambot threat.

Here’s how you can enable the email authentication feature in Google apps:

  1. Log into your Google apps account
  2. Navigate to the Advanced Tools tab of the Control Panel
  3. Select the DKIM option at the bottom of the page.

Making this change is pretty easy, but might require your network administrator to make sure the settings are correct.  You may also input specific organizations that have trouble receiving your emails.  This way, it will ensure your emails don’t end up in their spam folder.
