I will share what is DKIM in brief and why it is important

DKIM is an email security standard created to ensure messages aren’t altered in transit between the sending and recipient servers. It uses public-key cryptography to sign email with a private key as it leaves a sending server.

Recipient servers then use a public key published to a domain’s DNS to authenticate the source of the message, and that the body of the message hasn’t changed during transit. Once the signature is checked with the public key by the recipient server, the message passes DKIM and is considered authentic.

It's importance: 

  • emails that are signed with DKIM appear more legitimate to your recipients and are less likely to go to Junk or Spam folders.
  • It is compatible with existing email infrastructure and works with SPF and DMARC to create multiple layers of security for domains sending emails.
  • As you send email and improve your delivery practices you help your domain build a good sending reputation with ISPs, which improves deliverability.

Basically it uses asymmetric encryption which uses public key to encrypt and private key to decrypt the message.

Yes, one way it’s like that.

Is it similar to WhatsApp encrypted message security where the code of the message is changed when sent.

I think simply by doing research, simply as I do.

@ihthisham-ahmed 

Same as asymetric encryption,  only the sender and receiver can able to see the message, it uses public, private key pair for encryption and decryption, therefore anyone from outside interfere the traffic can't able to read that message which is encrypted and can be decrypt only with receiver's private key.

It’s not like Whatsapp. It’s an application itself.

You can watch videos related to it. I searched for some alternatives and examples but didn’t get any. It’s an application.
