Hello Matt,

without going in the details of your email, try coding the logic in Lua:

It is supposed to satisfy any wish. In case it does not, propose how the Lua interface shall be enhanced.

Currently they just use the customers email address which means they can’t process any bounces, and trying to get them to update their software to use a different envelope sender was going nowhere.

This setup allows the customer to only make one dns change and gives me control over the public key record, but I can’t create a new key whilst keeping the old one active. I guess the only real solution there would be to get two CNAME records created for k1 & k2, then alternate between them every so often.
