Hi all,

Now, I can see the opendkim process running!
To achieve that, I have modified the init.d/opendkim file like that
(sorry, I guess this kind of modifications is evident for you guys...):


I don't have "connection refused" in my mail.log any more but now, I
have a "can't load key from /etc/opendkim/mydomain/default : permission
denied" when an email is sent.

I have to say that at the begin of Steve's HowTo, when I tried to
execute this line :

useradd -r -g opendkim -G mail -s /sbin/nologin -d /var/run/opendkim -c "OpenDKIM" opendkim
I get an error ("group opendkim doesn't exists).

So I did it in 2 steps :
groupadd opendkim
useradd -r -g opendkim -G mail -s /sbin/nologin -d /var/run/opendkim -c "OpenDKIM" opendkim
