    When I setup my accounts for DKIM using this little snipit:
    for i in `ls /var/cpanel/users` ;do /usr/local/cpanel/bin/dkim_keys_install $i ;done

    The domains end up with three DKIM TXT records
    default._domainkey "k=rsa; p=MHwwDQYJKoZIhvc...",
    default._domainkey.webmail "k=rsa; p=MHwwDQYJKoZIhvc..." and
    default._domainkey "v=DKIM1; k=rsa; p=MIGfMA0GCSq..."

    Which of these three keys is correct?

    How can we adjust our procedure to get one (or perhaps 2 if webmail is good) key instead of three?

    Hello :)

    To clarify, do you experience different behavior when you enable DKIM through cPanel? Are those entries all in the same DNS zone?

    Thank you.

    Using cPanel, the DNS settings were correct. Due to my configuration, I ended up disabling DKIM. We relay all mail through a smarthost and use DNSMadeEasy for DNS.

    Feel free to open a support ticket using the link in my signature if you need to enable DKIM again in the future and the issue persists.

    Thank you.
