I'm trying to create a DKIM public key on what I think is a Bind DNS server (Mac OS Server 5). I've followed the instructions in the manual about splitting the record, but Connect keeps saying the key is wrong. If I do nslookup -query=txt mail._domainkey.ourdomain.com, it looks ok apart from the quotes and spaces between the split parts. Can anyone suggest anything?

thanks

Ok, I seem to have got the key working on the main domain. The problem now is an alias domain which Connect is saying has an invalid key, even though it's the same as the main domain.

The other weird thing is that if I enter the key as multi-line, so

("v=DKIM1;"
"p=part1"
"part2"
"part3"
"part4")

then go back to the zone file later, it has removed the quotes and line breaks.

This is driving me nuts. nslookup gives the same key for both the main domain and alias, but Connect is still saying the alias key is wrong.

I'm curious what you learn in resolving the problem-I've got the exact same issue, running an older version of OS X Server. nslookup for both internal & external name servers return the right stuff, but Connect is unhappy with whatever is returned to it.

Cheers,
Jon

It's been working now since last night so hopefully it will stay that way (previously Connect was happy with the key then changed its mind). After much fiddling around the syntax that seems to work is

( "v=DKIM1;""p=part1""part2""part3""part4" )

As I say, I'm pretty sure if you enter it on multiple lines, the Server app later removes the line breaks and quotes. Another factor that I think was confusing matters is that despite me clearing the DNS cache and restarting the DNS service after each zone file change, there seems to be a delay in Connect picking the change up. After my previous message I had more or less given up, but checked again maybe 10 minutes later and it was working.
