In looking for some help or at least initial advice for getting opendkim to work with a remote LDAP server.

I use Zimbra email and in version 8 it includes opendkim. The integrated system stores all key data into Zimbra LDAP server. Weeks ago I made a deployment of an MXHero box acting a relay for the Zimbra server. After that I lost Zimbra opendkim signing.

I like very much the way Zimbra 8 manages the keys. Take a look at So I want to recover all the already generated keys inside Zimbra LDAP from the remote MXHero box and make it sign the outgoing emails.

My researchs are at a dead end because i cant get opendkim 2.6.0 in MXHero box run using Zimbra opendkim config file. I get a LDAP connection error when trying to reach Zimbra LDAP.

[root_at_mxhero ~]# opendkim -x /etc/opendkim.conf
: dkimf_db_open(): Connect errorap://$d)

My open topic in MXHero forums is
