    I am trying to setup the dedicated IP address for domains that have one to send mail from their site instead of the servers IP. I ran into some complications with this because after setting this up email was returning a 550 error""" and it was not until I disabled "Allow DKIM verification for incoming messages" was I able to send mail.

    Allow DKIM says it is looking for valid signatures in incoming mail. However I do not know what that signature is supposed to be because in my tests the email addresses used came from other accounts on the same server. So one question I have is if the signatures are not correct on the server how do I go about correcting that?

    Because there is no reference saying that I need to disable DKIM verification I assume these will work together and I like what DKIM does for my clients and need to know what I must do to get these two parameters to play nice?

    Thanks, here is what the server message read, email addresses have been changed to protect the innocent...;)

    The error that the other server returned was:
    550 Administrative prohibition

    Could you open a support ticket so we can take a closer look? It's possible you have some custom Exim configuration rules in place that are conflicting with the native DKIM support. You can open a ticket via:

    Submit A Ticket

    Post the ticket number here and we can update this thread with the outcome.

    Thank you.

    To update, the issue was in-fact related to a custom Exim configuration value. The following value was not required, but added to the Exim configuration file:

    acl_smtp_dkim = acl_smtp_dkim

    Removing it and restarting Exim resolved the issue.

    Thank you.
