Thanks. I am invoking the init script by executing it just like any
other script:


root_at_cln01:/etc/init.d$ /etc/init.d/opendkim status

root_at_cln01:/etc/init.d$ /etc/init.d/opendkim stop

root_at_cln01:/etc/init.d$ /etc/init.d/opendkim start


.. these commands are not doing anything.

For the InternalHosts, you can list each host's name or IP address on
its own line in the file. You could also use a CIDR block reference or
a domain wildcard. The opendkim.conf(5) man page lists the options.


You probably should delete or comment out the "MTA" line from your
configuration file. With Sendmail, it's possible to configure multiple
listeners, each with its own name, and then tell the filter which
listener accepted a particular connection. This is what the "MTA" line
refers to, not the general name of the program you're using to receive
mail. Unless you want to be specific about signing only mail that comes
in on a specific socket, you should probably just disable this.


How are you invoking the init script? There should definitely be

I am running OpenDKIM 2.1.1 with Postfix and have a couple of questions
that I was hoping someone could help me with:


* In /etc/opendkim.conf, I have "InternalHosts /etc/blah/blah," where
the "blah" text file should contain multiple hosts that should be
considered internal. How do I specify multiple hosts in this file?


* I also have "MTA postfix" in opendkim.conf, yet I get "no MTA
name match" in maillog. Should I specify something else here?


I also seem to be having problems with the init script located in the
contrib directory not returning any output, but I'm sure that's a simple
problem that I haven't had a chance to look at yet.
