Hi Gerard,

edit your /etc/mail/ file and add this to it, workes for me under Sendmail-8.13_1

Xdk-filter, S=inet:8891 at localhost

then rebuild your sendmail.... make... make install.... make restart
have a look under:
it's a very detailed description
it will say to add this to the .mc file, but it will not work with out reporting errors.
INPUT_MAIL_FILTER(`dk-filter', `S=inet:8891 at localhost')

Xdk-filter, S=inet:8891 at localhost
to avoid errors at boot time.

I got the domainkey build, but still strugle to auto sign.
