I followed this doc to setup easy dkim on server. After updating dns server as said in doc DKIM Verification Status changed to verified but DKIM Signing status still on waiting on sender verification... . I dont know what does that mean and how to complete the verification.Please help, thanks.


I found the following information, which may be helpful:

Sender verification refers to the status of the verification of either the domain or the email address that you want to enable DKIM signing for. You cannot enable DKIM signing unless you verified the sender as well.

From the description you provided it looks like you successfully verified the DKIM setup for the domain but you didn't successfully verify the domain itself. You need to add the domain verification record as well to your DNS (the record containing the verification token).

Here is a link for DomainVerification: http://docs.amazonwebservices.com/ses/latest/DeveloperGuide/InitialSetup.DomainVerification.html

Please also note that enabling DKIM signing at domain level doesn't automatically enable it for all the verified email addresses at that domain. You can find a more detailed explanation here: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?messageID=365553&#365553

You can read the full discussion on the AWS forum here: https://forums.aws.amazon.com/thread.jspa?threadID=109709

  • From the first paragraph in your first link (may have been updated since 2015): "When you verify an entire domain, you are verifying all email addresses from that domain, so you don't need to verify email addresses from that domain individually." – Fo. Dec 14 '18 at 22:10
