Hi again Murray,

thanks a lot for you explanation. As i understand, the list of FQDNs you're
talking about are the ones provided by such directive value, right?

*InternalHosts /etc/dkim/trusted-hosts*

As you can see i'm sharing the same file for ExternalIgnoreList directive.

*ExternalIgnoreList /etc/dkim/trusted-hosts*

This file contains the entries stored in the gist and that's why i don't
understand why OpenDKIM can't find himself inside such list
*https://gist.github.com/anonymous/de9411be3b6a5a405f24
<https://gist.github.com/anonymous/de9411be3b6a5a405f24>*

The last six entries in the file belong to an external list of domains and
machines which must be able to send their email through us. He're is the
genuine message which OpenDKIM complains about so you can contrast it with
the trusted-hosts file. *https://gist.github.com/anonymous/c6077d188d10930c9c98
<https://gist.github.com/anonymous/c6077d188d10930c9c98>*

Thanks a lot for you help man.
