Re: How is LDAP used with OpenDKIM?

Zimbra is my prefered collaboration and email platform and also can be a great "backend" for storing and simplifying DKIM key storage and query based on LDAP.

You can also get all your DKIM data from not Zimbra MTAs using LDAP. Check this tutorial for MXHero as an example.

Download and install Zimbra, follow the DKIM wiki, and see? ;) We leverage
OpenDKIM significantly for doing signing across multiple hosted domains,
storing all the data in LDAP.
