    If you're talking about adding your own certificate for SMTP over SSL for exim, search the forum for exim.key. If that is not what you are after, then as linux-image has said, you will have to explain what you are talking about as what you have said doesn't make sense.

    Well, you can, you'd just have to download the cPanel exim source rpm, which you can work out from /scripts/eximup. However, if you want to see the feature in cPanels exim, you'll obviously have to log it in bugzilla as an enhancement request.

    It seems more and more people are talking about this domainkey thing, I just found in /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre file it has something related:
    # DomainKeys - perform DomainKeys verification
    #
    # External modules required for use, see INSTALL for more information.
    #
    #loadplugin Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DomainKeys

    Is it possibile that you only need to uncomment it ?

    This sounds interesting, I wanted to implement it as well, any news on this issue?
    DomainKeys, along with SPF, is already being used by all medium and large sized organizations (not to mention google, yahoo, aol, microsoft, etc), and it can reduce spam a lot.

    SPF does nothing at all to reduce spam, it's only debatable use is to stop forged senders.

    I doubt it will do any good at this point .. unless your install is different from mine, I do not see a DomainKeys file in the plugin directory!

    No, but you can install it easily enough:

    /scripts/perlinstaller Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DomainKeys

    I don't realy understand. Is this mean that DomainKeys can now be installed just like that:
    /scripts/perlinstaller Mail::SpamAssassin::Plugin::DomainKeys

    and then uncomment that row in this file:
    /etc/mail/spamassassin/v310.pre

    and that's it, or what?

    Not quite.

    If you are using SpamAssassin, the DomainKeys Plugin allows you to score inbound mail using rulesets that evaluate whether or not the mail contains domain keys etc.

    I have a feeling what you want to do is create your own domainkey and include it as part of the outbound mail header. For that you will need to read the documentation at http://duncanthrax.net/exim-experimental/

    I do not believe cPanel currently supports this version of Exim (someone please correct if wrong).

    Yes, that make sense :), and yes I wanted to install DomainKeys for outbound mails, but it looks like that I will have to wait for cPanel to support DomainKeys.

    Thank you.

    Anybody successfully implement domainkeys now on cpanel machine ?

    Hi,

    It seems quite sometimes this issue has been asked.

    Anybody managed to implement the domainkeys on their CPanel machine ? :confused:

    I'm willing to pay to get this implement on my server. I'm sick of some of my email went to Yahoo BULK folder. :mad:

    I'm not good in exim + linux to installed it by my own.

    Appreciates if anybody could help.

    Thank you.

    just wanted to chime in.. tons of complaints from users who can't send to hotmail or yahoo.

    Apparently aol isn't far behind in putting all mail w/o DK to spam folder as well as many others.

    Is there a bug or feature request open for this? It should be fairly easy, generate the rsa private cert/setup exim with the existing features -- create the public sig, and as part of the dns record template add the TXT record to every domain so that it uses the same key.

    One set per server and everything would work well...
