Hi Jim,

The issue is a machine trying to send mail either to your server or
through it using a domain name in the From: field that is one for which
you would normally add a signature, except that the SMTP client isn't on a
network you've labeled as "internal". OpenDKIM whines about this in the
log as a possible security concern, and doesn't sign the message.
