I'm pretty sure the DNS records were correct but for some reason
outbound mail wasn't being signed.

Appreciate any suggestions on the "best" choice of DKIM add-on to sign
outbound email using Postix on Centos 5.

There was a bug in the queue file handling code for "postfix with
milter" that should only have concerned later versions of Postfix ,
but ... Likely that is what fixed it. The fix to that code, I mean:-).
The symptoms indicate that at least... Then again, there are many
things that can have that particular effect:-).
