    The "Enable DKIM/SPF Globally" option doesn't add a DKIM record to the "root" user.
    How should I proceed with doing it?

    Hello @Railander,

    The Enable DKIM/SPF Globally feature is designed to enable DKIM and SPF records for all accounts created on the server. The root user is not considered an account, and using root as the username for an account isn't allowed.

    Is this for the purpose of setting up a DKIM record for the server's hostname? If so, you can find information about that topic on the following thread:

    DKIM for main server hostname

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thank you.
