   I know in general we have DKIM working well, but I have this implemented
on a client's server that is getting an error, and I am not quite sure what
to make of it. I was able to get the email in for them by placing an
exemption in the config, but that really just masks the problem. So I am
trying to figure out if this is something wrong at, or is this a
problem on my side of the shop that I need to address.


Here is the error:


Oct 7 13:50:30 mail2 mail2-smtp[48120]: p97HoRe1048120:
from=<>, size=11127, class=0, nrcpts=1,
msgid=<smail.1318007021211.xq4zkgpblvfirvthyq6l4110khgspvrc0mqe7k3we58m9npd2>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA-v4, []


Oct 7 13:50:30 mail2 dkim-filter[1488]: p97HoRe1048120: key retrieval
failed (s=s1024, `' reply



I know for a fact we allow DNS queries up to 4096 bytes, and I can sign mail
from my server to theirs and it works fine, so I am guessing this may be a problem. I tried some google fu on the error, but all I could
find was some comments about a library issue, from long ago that I am sure
would have been corrected..



Any input or ideas most appreciated.
