Thanks Steve for your reply. Looks like the public key is invalid for some
reasons. Don''t know why poart25 said it is based64 data for the data
generated in base32. I'll try to re-generate a base32 key. says: Authentication-Results:; dkim=permerror
(invalid key: invalid character ('"', 0x22) in base64 data); says <>:
Authentication-Results:; dkim=permerror (verification error:
syntax error in key data)

mail to could not be delivered for some reasons.
