What I would like to see is the client to MSA entries. The "Milter
insert" is done near the end of the SMTP traction. DKIM signing a
message should not take more than a second. In practice, it is much
less than that. Without actual information from the mail log, it is
difficult to say what is going on.

The message I sent to you took 39 seconds from client submission to
the MSA and from there to the MTA where it was relayed it to The actual DKIM signing took less than
one second. An incorrect reading of the mail log might have us
conclude that there was some DKIM signing or another problem.
