I'm running Ubuntu 13.04 and I'm having trouble getting opendkim to start. I followed this tutorial:

It seems to be related to permissions on /etc/mail. I don't see anything related to opendkim in:

sudo service opendkim start
Starting OpenDKIM: opendkim: /etc/opendkim.conf: /etc/mail is writeable and owned by uid 107 which is not the executing uid (111) or the superuser

ls -ld /etc/mail
drwxr-sr-x 7 smmta smmsp 4096 Feb 20 14:02 /etc/mail

id smmta
uid=107(smmta) gid=112(smmta) groups=112(smmta),45(sasl)

id opendkim
uid=111(opendkim) gid=117(opendkim) groups=117(opendkim)


Domain putnamhill.net
KeyFile /etc/mail/dkim.key
Selector mail
Canonicalization relaxed/relaxed
DNSTimeout 5
Mode sv
SignatureAlgorithm rsa-sha256
SubDomains no
X-Header no
Statistics /var/log/dkim-filter/dkim-stats

Any ideas? Thanks for any help.

p.s. My hosting provider has not associated mail._domainkey with my dkim record, so that end is not working yet. Hopefully it will soon.
