Dkim? spf? h-e-l-p!

Hi everyone!

Hoping someone can help me with this…

Made a website that uses php mail to send out confirmation emails, etc. These emails being sent out successfully are essential to using the website.

My problem:

  • They are not making it to AOL email addresses
  • Gmail addresses have “via colquitt.dreamhost” next to our email address

The only thing I can think to solve this problem has to do with DKIM and SPF. I have researched this extensively but am finding it to be terribly confusing. How/where do I get the DKIM keys? How do I set up the SPF?

I have read and re - read the dreamhost wiki information - but I’m still really confused and can’t get it right.

Any help would be so appreciated!!
