Erm, so if you would please elaborate a little further...

If I send a message through my server (sendmail) via port 465/587 through the sendmail MSA... how does this affect signing of messages through sendmail's DKIM-milter?

I haven't looked lately, but IIRC, mimedefang does scan outgoing email (although I wish it didn't I just never looked up how to disable it)

Which one would I be better off using for outbound email? Sendmail or MimeDefang?

Ok, that's what I needed to know on that end..

Thanks David!
