I am trying to setup an DKIM email signing for a postfix SMTP server.
This server is to be used by different services on the local network.
I have generated DKIM key pair, added it to my domain and was able to successfully send emails out from the server itself as seen here:
me@server:~$ telnet localhost 25 Trying 127.0.0.1... Connected to localhost. Escape character is '^]'. 220 server.lan ESMTP Postfix (Ubuntu) HELO example.com 250 server.lan MAIL FROM: email@example.com 250 2.1.0 Ok RCPT TO: firstname.lastname@example.org 250 2.1.5 Ok DATA 354 End data with <CR><LF>.<CR><LF> To:email@example.com Subject:Testing from server hello . 250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as AAD604EA1CC2
That message is received with the correct DKIM signature.
But, if I do the exact same (only with
telnet server.lan 25) thing on another machine on the local network, the DKIM signature is not included and the recipient doesn't know who sent the email.
I have found that this entry in
/var/log/mail.log is relevant to it:
Jul 30 04:28:16 server opendkim: AAD604EA1CC2: can't determine message sender; accepting
So I have figured that postfix is not setting the
FROM address properly. So why is it not doing it and how can I fix it?
Thanks in advance...
The entire log during transaction from the workstation is this:
