That version is fairly old (about a year) by now. 2.8.4 is current. At a
minimum, upgrading will improve the error text so that it tells you which
file or directory had permissions that were unacceptable.

Generally, what the filter wants is to find that the only users that can
write to the private key are the superuser and the opendkim user. If
there's any group write permission enabled for a group that doesn't only
contain those users, or if there's a global write permission enabled
anywhere, the key can't be used.

You can override this check by setting RequireSafeKeys to "false".
