Interesting. It should be matching on that based on that input. I'll see if I can simulate what you're seeing and thus figure out if it's a bug or not.

One thing though: You don't need "refile" for a file that contains no wildcards or regular expressions on which to match. Since everything in there is a string, you can just change it to "file".

Well, I think I answered my own issue. For some reason I don't understand, the localhost IP ( must appear LAST in the trusted-hosts list. If it appears before any of the other trusted hosts, those other hosts aren't considered "internal." Can someone confirm this is a feature and not a bug? I couldn't find anything on Google that explains why this works this way, but I'm glad I figured it out and mail from my trusted host is now being signed. :)

I've googled for the answer, and searched through the archives, but can't seem to see what I'm doing wrong. It's GOTTA be something simple that I'm overlooking. :)

I have two servers: Zork and Yar. Both are running Postfix and Zork is running OpenDKIM (2.2.0 released on 10/3/10).

Zork sends signed mail no problem and says:

"Oct 5 16:32:58 zork opendkim[23594]: 0116C15F513: DKIM-Signature header added"

Yar is set up to relay mail through Zork. I've added Yar's hostname (and IP for good measure) to the InternalHosts file on Zork, but I still get this error in Zork's maillog:

Oct 5 17:02:20 zork opendkim[437]: (unknown-jobid): [] not internal
Oct 5 17:02:20 zork opendkim[437]: (unknown-jobid): not authenticated
Oct 5 17:02:20 zork opendkim[437]: 7DE9915F513: no signature data

Here's my /etc/opendkim.conf:

Here's my /etc/mail/dkim/trusted-hosts file:

I've been pulling my hair out. I'm not sure what else OpenDKIM needs to accept Yar as "internal." Can anyone shove me in the right direction?

Thanks in advance,
