I presume that you mean an external host that is sending messages
without a valid DKIM signature for your domain. They shouldn't be able
to send messages with valid signatures from your domain.

You might want to be careful about rejecting such messages. If you have
users who send through external mailing lists that break DKIM
signatures, they might not receive list messages from others in your domain.
