My outgoing mail got signed by opendkim, but yahoo said dkim=permerror (bad
DNS reply).
I sent mail to and got
dkim=permerror (verification error: syntax error in key data). The txt value
for default._domainkey in DNS TXT record is copied from txt file (on
notepad) generated by opendkim-genkey. I checked there is no no break in txt
value. What could cause the syntax error?
