If you have created the DKIM record in Smartermail, it should look as below.

1. Log in to your Windows server. Click on Start >> Windows Administrative Tools.

2. Click on DNS.

3. Inside the forward lookup zone, double-click on the domain for which you want to set the DKIM record. 

4. Right-click on the blank space where all the DNS records are added and click on the Other New Records.

5. From the drop-down, select Text (TXT) Record and click on the Create Record button. 

6. At first, Enter the record name. It should be like 8D8xxxxxxxx4BF6._domainKey, so your FQDN becomes 8D8xxxxxxxx4BF6._domainKey.yourdomain.com. Inside Text, enter the text record value. 

7. Once you add the record, click on the OK button and click on Done at Resource Record Type.
