What is dkim.mcsv.net?

dkim.mscv.net is a hostname used as part of Mailchimps email domain authentication.

For the most part it is not something you should see or use unless you're authorizing Mailchimp to deliver emails from your domain.

Email domain authentication on Mailchimp

In order to authenticate your domain on Mailchimp, you need to a DNS CNAME record on your domain that tells email servers that Mailchimp is allowed to send emails on your behalf.
