You can use the DKIM feature that limits the signature to cover only the
content it saw, meaning added text won't break the signature. There's an
obvious attack though in that someone could take a message signed as you
and append anything they want to it, and the signature (yours) will still

If you really want to do this with OpenDKIM, the BodyLengthDB setting is
what you're after. See opendkim.conf(5) for details.
