I am not very knowledgeable in this area, but have been able to make great head way. Now i am stuck
I setup my own mail server, e.g mailbox.example.com. I had the domain dns point to my mail server in my office. i was able to set up everything working fine. such as dkim and spf records.
Recently i decided to setup an internal dns server in the office so as to resolve some addresses for some development servers internally.
Ok the problem now is my mail server is sitting on the internal dns server (the mail server is on the same box as the dns server) its still able to send and receive emails but not sure if dkim is working properly.
when i try to do a dkim test "amavisd test keys" i get "invalid (public key: not available)" and i know that that means i have a dns issue.
so what should i do? I am currently looking at my internal dns zonefile and i dont know what to do (i am using bind dns server on an ubuntu-server box).
do i configure a dkim txt record on the local dns ? or is there a way to forward dkim "request" to the external dns ? or do i have this whole thing done wrong ?
To be clear
- Basically my internal domain name is the same as my external domain name (i.e example.com)
- i have a mail server within my internal domain mailbox.example.com, that uses my external domain dns (external dns has been setup to point to my emailserver (which of course is now sitting behind my internal dns))
- dkim (i dont think its working because it fails the dkim test")
Need help in determing the proper setup
What is the proper way to set this up ?
Update: Here is my local dns zone file
; ; BIND data file for local loopback interface ; $TTL 604800 @ IN SOA webserver.example.com. root.example.com.
