    just to let you know that when adding the DKIM generated in ISPconfig Email Domain to a TXT record in a DNS zone from your ISP:
    • -It should not have any quotes at the start, at the end and in the middle.
    • -It should not contain spaces
    • -the default name should be:
    So in your DNS zone it should look like:
    default._domainkey    TXT   v=DKIM1;t=s;p=Mwyepiurhkshdfpiuhpkhfpiuehrfihsdkhfpieuht
    So make sure that in the long string behind p= there are no quotes and no spaces, mine had also spaces. Copy it first to a txt editor like notepad++ and check the string.
    On my VPS DNS zone it was accepted only without quotes, but according to 2 check sites it was not correct.
    This site said, it should not contain quotes.
    This site said, it should not contain spaces.
    Now mine came out as This seems to be a valid DKIM Record on both sites.

    Just to let you know if you have issues with it.

    This depends, some ISP require those quotes, some do not allow them. Somewhat annoying ...
