OpenDKIM Howto

cd /etc/opendkim/keys

The 'selector' you choose here does not have to be the actual selector used in DNS. It is just the name used for storing the .txt and .private files

opendkim-genkey -s somename -d domain.name

Make sure the key ends up in /etc/opendkim/keys and is readable for user opendkim

SigningTable

  1. somename is the first field in Keytable
*@domain.name somename

KeyTable

Here the name of the selector (the part before ._domainkey) is the one you publish in dns

somename domain.name:selectorname:/path/to/somename.private

Checking

opendkim-testkey -v

This will try to fetch the key published in DNS, so "record not found" means DNS record not found.

FAQ

opendkim: no signing table match for

In opendkim.conf use:

refile:/etc/opendkim/SigningTable

opendkim-testkey key not secure

Probably means you have no DNSSEC


opendkim: /etc/opendkim.conf: /etc/opendkim/keys/default.private: open(): No such file or directory

Means it's defined in opendkim.conf, and you're not using KeyTable
