I want to setup automatic signing with DKIM for all outgoing emails. This ir virtual private server and hosts a single website. I have tried lots of tutorials on how to implement dkim email signing, but when i send email, anything related to dkim does not even show in syslog. Server is Ubuntu 14.04.

Postfix:

milter_default_action = accept
milter_protocol = 2
smtpd_milters = inet:localhost:8892
non_smtpd_milters = inet:localhost:8892

opendkim.conf:

Syslog                  yes
LogWhy                  yes
LogResults              yes
Mode                    s
Domain                  *
KeyFile                 /etc/opendkim/email.key
Selector                email
Socket                  inet:8892@localhost

All that is showing when i start opendkim is

Jan 15 11:57:55 xxx opendkim[19947]: OpenDKIM Filter: mi_stop=1
Jan 15 11:57:55 xxx opendkim[19947]: OpenDKIM Filter v2.9.1 terminating with status 0, errno = 0
Jan 15 11:57:55 xxx opendkim[19999]: OpenDKIM Filter v2.9.1 starting (args: -x /etc/opendkim.conf -u opendkim -P /var/run/opendkim/opendkim.pid)

This is what happens after postfix restart and mail sending:

  • What about your /etc/default/opendkim file, I believe you need the line SOCKET="inet:8892@localhost" there also (or maybe only). – NickW Jan 15 '15 at 11:22
  • Hi, comment in the file states that "Command-line options specified here will override the contents of /etc/opendkim.conf". Anyway, i put there also, no changes. – Deniss Kozlovs Jan 15 '15 at 12:17
  • So, when you run netstat, can you see the opendkim port there in the list? – NickW Jan 15 '15 at 12:19
  • Actually, no, i can see it in process list: opendkim 21598 0.0 0.0 225016 2392 ? Ssl 15:31 0:00 /usr/sbin/opendkim -x /etc/opendkim.conf -u opendkim -P /var/run/opendkim/opendkim.pid – Deniss Kozlovs Jan 15 '15 at 12:32
  • Yes now i see it in nestat also: tcp 0 0 localhost.localdom:8892 – Deniss Kozlovs Jan 15 '15 at 12:45

Fixed it. I don't know how but I had no_milters set in /etc/postfix/master.cf in "pickup" service. It prevents postfix to send email to milter.

  • That is odd, surprising the package doesn't add that during the install. – NickW Jan 15 '15 at 14:32

I found cat /var/run/opendkim/opendkim.pid = 3091. I inserted the line : Socket inet:3091@localhost in opendkim.conf. I added the smtpd_milters = inet:localhost:3091 non_smtpd_milters = inet:localhost:3091. And finally , opendkim is communicating with postfix . I checked with netstat -apn|grep opendkim : tcp 0 0 127.0.0.1:3091 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 593/opendkim unix 3 [ ] STREAM CONNECTED 19033 593/opendkim unix 3 [ ] STREAM CONNECTED 19034 593/opendkim unix 3 [ ] STREAM CONNECTED 19036 593/opendkim unix 3 [ ] STREAM CONNECTED 19035 593/opendkim unix 2 [ ] DGRAM 18155 593/opendkim

Up and running!

    That post is barely readable. The PID is likely to be different after the next reboot, so this doesn't seem a reliable solution. – RalfFriedl Sep 28 at 9:22
  • Ok, perhaps. But do you have other solution ? – Dragos Balaceanu Sep 29 at 13:20
  • If we complete the socket in /etc/opendkim.conf and /etc/postfix/main.cf , isn't important for us the opendkim.pid . The opendkim.pid is the pid for service opendkim . This is mainly solution. – Dragos Balaceanu Sep 29 at 14:07
