    Hello :)

    i am trying to get dkim working correctly but i cant seem to edit the blank settings in the dns dkim record. it just displays a no entry sign where the curser should be.

    also i followed this tutorial to install opendkim https://scaron.info/blog/debian-mail-spf-dkim.html

    And why don't you install the dkim-patch? This works out-of-the-box. But you must revert your changes.

    DKIM is integrated in 3.1 - you don`t have to install anything. Just follow oen of the tutorials from howtoforge.com and create the key-pair for a maildomain.

    Thanks for the help :) but i am abit lost as to which tutorial to go with. i am on debian . also every tutorial i can see on howtoforge.com all need dkim to be install with theyre tutorials, whether its dkim-filter or dkim-milter.

    See #2 - ISPConfig 3.1 has full dkim-support. For older versions just use the dkim-patch. There is no need for dkim-filter or milter. The signing is done with amavis.

    hello again lads

    im sorry yous have to spoon feed me but i still cant figure out what i need to do.
    i let apt-get choose which apps i was missing. i look through the tutuorial i can see anything else the would apply to my setup

    the input area of the DNS DKIM RECORD is still grayed out and cant be editted .

    The dkim record is completely maintained by ispconfig and inserted by ispconfig into the configuration files. The record dont need to be edited and therefore it is not editable.

    Then how can i enable dkim ? do i just create a dir in /var/lib/amavis/dkim /var/lib/amavis/dkim/mydomain.tld then create a pair keys ?

    Edit: if ispconfig maintains these records and they cant be edited. why is their no record at all?
    i presume since ispconfig maintains these records i dont need to create any keys or do i ?

    Lmao i am a silly billy

    i didnt realise that to get private and public keys and to have dkim's setup. i just needed to go into the Email module and select the required domain then domainkeys identifed mail. input a selector and generate keys . then over to dns settings and select dkim from the tabs and save and all was done for me lol

    i have spent alot of trying to figure this out. when it had already be done for me :D thank you lol

    i done a test with [email protected]25.com
    can you let me if this all looks ok
    Thanks @florian030 @till

    you can use a key > 1024 if you are running bind as your dns.

    As an additional note: you can set the dkim key strength that is used for new keys under System > Server config > Mail.
