Your discretion. I'm doing mine hourly but that's just because I'm impatient for data. :-) Some people are doing daily and that's just fine. The only technical argument favouring higher frequencies is that a bad batch means only a small set gets lost.

Both are true, but I'd prefer "-r" just in case one duplicate in the bunch causes the whole bunch to be rejected.

We should try one without "-r" just to make sure. Use:

        opendkim-stats -c [-a] -m /path/to/your/db test. ("-a" anonymizes the domain and sending IP address using MD5.) If it looks good, you just add "-r" and change to the submission address, and throw it in cron.

Outstanding, thanks!
