I have a VPS that I had a fresh install of CentOS 6 on it and then I installed virtualmin on it and we’ve been great for a few months. I’ve been hosting a handful of domains from there and on one of the domains in particular, I’m going to need to send out email (and not go to spam).
The domain I’m trying to fix is toyotasupraclassifieds.com
I have both my hosting DNS and server DNS mirrored (to the best that I can). My domains are using the nameservers on the hosting DNS.
I created an TXT record for my SPF that was generated from the SPF Wizard on Microsoft on my hosting platform. I also followed the instructions provided in the Virtualmin documentation to install a domain key and the installation ran without any error and I followed the directions correctly. I copied that domain key and created a TXT record on my hosting DNS as well.
So I’ve been testing my stuff to see if it goes straight to spam and it does… so I looked online and ran a couple checks.
Half the time this says I don’t have an SPF record and the other half it says its fine.
It says Domain-Key Status: NOT PASSED, The message does have have a domain key, but i have the following header displayed below…
DKIM-Signature: my domain key
This says a couple things.
Message does not contain a DomainKeys Signature
but then it says this further down…
Message contains this DKIM Signature:
DKIM-Signature: … *my dkim *
result = invalid
Details: public key: OpenSSL error: bad base64 decode
SPF records pass on this test as well.
I’m honestly not sure what to try at this point. I stopped/restarted dkim-milter and restarted postfix to no avail. I have an SSL on that IP (and domain in fact) but I still get that error. I updated all the packages I could so I’m as up to date as possible. Can someone help direct me on what steps I should take for things to check or what to do next? Thanks everyone.
