DKIM milter wont start

The folowing occurs when trying to start dkim-milter

/etc/rc.d/init.d/dkim-milter start
Starting DomainKeys Identified Mail Milter (dkim-filter): dkim-filter: /etc/mail/dkim-milter/dkim-filter.conf: configuration error at line 152: unrecognized parameter
Closed (fixed)


What is on line 152 of /etc/mail/dkim-milter/dkim-filter.conf ?

Sorry - kind of useless report without that. Line 151 starts 'Domain' then each domain name followed by a comma. the last domain has no termination. Its the line after this. and says
##      default (none)

The issue here is that the DKIM milter cannot handle really long config file lines.

Virtualmin 3.83 and later fix this, but not if a Domain line already exists.

To force a fix, do the following :

  1. Remove that Domain line manually.
  2. Disable DKIM in Virtualmin.
  3. Re-enabling DKIM in Virtualmin.
