this thread who may be trying to troubleshoot after Brandon's site
deletes the test results):

X-DKIM: OpenDKIM Filter v2.2.2 p15CC1fQ017566
DKIM-Signature: v=1; a=rsa-sha256; c=relaxed/simple;;
        s=default; t=1296907922;

And here's your DNS TXT record for that domain/selector:

"v=DKIM1; r=postmaster; g=*; k=rsa;

Structurally, I can't see anything obvious, which makes me wonder if

notepad, but if there's no break in the txt value, then you should be

I had an issue like this once that I actually resolved by deleting the
old keys, running the genkey script again, and re-pasting the DNS TXT
