The dkim-milter product is no longer actively supported. (Also, 2.2.1 is a very old version; 2.8.3 was the last release, in the spring of 2009.) You should try again with OpenDKIM (, using the documentation SM provided.

First of all I would like to thank you for answering my email,

I was trying to configure dkim-milter one of the mail gateways which don't content the mailboxes, this server is being used just for relaying for outbound emails only.

I followed below steps in order to install and configuring dkim-milter with postfix MTA

1. Downloaded and install the software,

rpm -Uvh --nodeps

2. creating the required directory and assigning the permission.

mkdir /etc/dkim-milter

chown dkim-milt.dkim-milt /etc/dkim-milter

chmod 700 /etc/dkim-milter

chgrp postfix /var/run/dkim-milter

chmod 770 /var/run/dkim-milter

3. Generate the Keys -d (this is my domain)

This has created two files default.private and default.txt I have copied the text of default.txt and added in my domain zone file as TXT record.

Here is the spf check.

[root_at_ns1 named]# host -t txt (checking the SPF record but I don't know why is showing the descriptive text in between)

" descriptive text "v=DKIM1\; g=*\; k=rsa\; p=MIGfMA0GCSqGSIb3DQEBAQUAA4GNADCBiQKBgQDH+9OPlAWBIn9JtH/fvjVFfcBpYHS1ssS/53A9KVcnq+yy8CyfosMHUnIdOxxUufJ9K2aVuNyi+dEiF7KFs+dXs72+3PeoOjb3ytptkJiwE/UFyGfpB+njlWT2mXXKyeUKfqaRpAi+z0rkT6XtPByAczeMajE57XPSMK96kPDR8QIDAQAB"

Here is my config file for the dkim, I believe I in SELECTOR_NAME I should use my domainname "" instead of default is it??

# Default values














EXTRA_ARGS="-h -l -D"

# User configuration







[root_at_mailgate8 MailScanner]#

Following entries I have Adding into the postfix

smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/dkim-milter/dkim.sock

non_smtpd_milters = unix:/var/run/dkim-milter/dkim.sock

up on running dkim milter, I faced permission error, which I have fixed by giving the write permission.

It would be great if some one look into it and correct me..

Thanks in advance

The message has no DKIM-Signature attached, so the autoresponder is
