@Monkeenmao: Hello Monkeenmao,

As of v6.6.1, ORF can verify the DKIM signature(s) in incoming emails, but it cannot sign outbound messages. This feature will be added in a future update.

As for the DKIM and DMARC TXT records, they should be published in the zone file of the DNS server authoritative for your domain, under the following locations:

DMARC: _dmarc.your-domain.com
DKIM: your-dkim-selector._domainkey.your-domain.com

I hope this helps.

@Daniel Novak (Vamsoft): Thanks for your comments!
ORF v6.6.1 can not sign outbound message, this means DKIM private key and public key can not been produced on ORF server.
message receiver can not verify the mail DKIM. it's right?

@Monkeenmao: You can generate and export the private key for DKIM using the key generator on the "ARC Signing" page (ORF Administration Tool > ARC Signing > Key button ), because ARC uses the same keys as DKIM. You can also use the generated DNS TXT record too.

@Daniel Novak (Vamsoft): thanks!
If enable SPF/DMIM/ DMARC under the authentication , the arrived email will be filtered from SPF to DKIM ,then DMARC。 it's right? what‘s your advice?

@Monkeenmao: When the DMARC test is enabled *and* the domain in the "Author" email address has a published DMARC record, ORF performs only the DMARC Test (which includes the SPF and DKIM tests, but when these are run as part of the DMARC Test, their results don't trigger any filtering action - instead they are used as "helpers" to produce the DMARC Test result).

If the author's domain has no DMARC record, ORF performs the SPF and DKIM tests (if the corresponding DNS records exist) and evaluates their results separately. The order is always DMARC Test > SPF Test > DKIM Test.

I hope this clarifies your question.
