set up DKIM for SMTP

Hi,

I'm wondering how do I set up my DKIM for the SMTP server when I have the site located at a shared hosting company? The site is located at bluehost.com and regular mail (i.e. mail sent from outlook and thunderbird) is sent using the mail.ultratrust.com and I think *.bluehost.com as the SMTP servers. Bulk (double opt-in) will come from http://smtp.com from a software that is hosted at http://emailmarketingservicesco.com.

I read instructions on setting it up if one hosts their own linux VPS or dedicated server but the mail domain is hosted at bluehost.com.

Thanks. Any help is appreciated.

Hi RizyDeWino,

1) I read that DKIM is the newer format which was formed from Domain Keys. So the article was suggesting I implement DKIM. Should I not implement DKIM?

2) How do I set up the SPF record for ultratrust.com? I was directed to this page from the google site:
http://old.openspf.org/wizard.html?mydomain=ultratrust.com

Here is the Google page:

Here is the scenario:
Regular email SMTP - ultratrust.com will be sending out email from mail.ultratrust.com and I believe one of the email servers from bluehost.com (which I think is 18-77.bluehost.com). These email servers are for sending out regular email.

Bulk (double opt-in) email SMTP - As for bulk emails, I'm thinking of using http://smtp.com. Unless you know of a better, less expensive, more reliable one.

Site where email program is hosted at - The site emailmarketingservices.com is the site that is hosting the email program only so I suppose I won't be including it in the SPF record or the SendID for Microsoft.

Thanks for your help. I really appreciated it. =)
