Let’s use our wax seal analogy again to explain this.

DKIM Not in Alignment

In this example, the letter has the following details:

  • Wax Seal (DKIM-Signature): sample.net
  • Letter’s Signature (From): [email protected]
  • Date: Fri, Feb 15 2002 16:54:30 -0800
  • Recipient’s Address (To): [email protected]
  • Subject: here’s a sample

In this case, the wax seal on the letter (DKIM-Signature) is from one organization (sample.net), and the signature on the letter (From) is from someone at a different organization (child.example.com).

This is like the wax seal on the letter being from one office, but the signature on the letter being from someone at a different office.

In this case, DMARC would say that the identifiers are not in alignment. This is like saying the wax seal doesn’t match the signature, so we can’t trust that the letter is legitimate.
