If you think of anything, please let me know. I have been reading all the
DKIM related posts I can find, both on this list and other places.

For a mailing list, would I have to expand my SigningTable in any way? My
opendkim SigningTable currently only has an entry for
*@list.example.com(which is associated with list._

But /var/log/mail.log shows a lot of entries like this:

no signing table match for [some member of the list]

So I think signing doesn't take place for messages passing through the list
because of the way I set up my SigningTable. But I didn't find any specific
info on setting up a SigningTable for a mailing list.

The mail log file also shows entries like this:

May 12 21:45:42 localhost opendkim[20976]: 55A4C122C5: DKIM-Signature
> header added

Although when I manually inspect emails I receive via the list from other
users they are never DKIM signed. (My own messages are signed -- and I
certainly match the signing table. But I can't match the log entries up to
individual users or to list activity, so far; therefore, a number of things
are still unclear.)

(Similarly, my trusted hosts table is limited to my own Mailman/Postfix
server. But I can't imagine it would be wise to change that.)
