Thanks for the reply,

I was searching around to see what option it was, and came across a
dkim-filter.conf sample from 2012 ( and
it listed BodyLengths in there. I had tried to add it into my opendkim.conf
file but after an attempt to restart opendkim, I got an error message
saying that there was an invalid parameter at that line. With a little more
searching around I found in a feature request on source forge ( that deprecates
BodyLengths in favor of BodyLengthsDB dated back to June 2011 in version
2.3.2 I believe.

Murray, looks like you created and closed it.
