OpenDKIM not doing anything on RHEL 6.1

I have RHEL 6.1 and postfix, and installed openDKIM using the EPEL repository. When I send an email from the server, opendkim doesn’t do anything. Is there something I've done wrong that needs fixing? I checked processes and opendkim is running. I generated a key which is located at /etc/opendkim/keys/


/etc/postfix/ includes the following:
smtpd_milters = inet:
non_smtpd_milters = $smtpd_milters
milter_default_action = accept

/etc/opendkim/KeyTable has:

/etc/opendkim/SigningTable has:

/etc/opendkim/TrustedHosts has:

/etc/opendkim.conf has (comment lines removed)
PidFile /var/run/opendkim/
Mode sv
Syslog yes
SyslogSuccess yes
UserID opendkim:opendkim
Socket inet:8891_at_localhost
Umask 002
Canonicalization relaxed/simple
Selector default
KeyTable refile:/etc/opendkim/KeyTable
SigningTable refile:/etc/opendkim/SigningTable
ExternalIgnoreList refile:/etc/opendkim/TrustedHosts
InternalHosts refile:/etc/opendkim/TrustedHosts

And here's the log when I start this up and send an email.
