    Hi Taras Ermoshin.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I checked the permissions as you suggested, and it all looks the same as in your example.

    I understand that this is just a warning, but since I have backups running every day for multiple domains, these messages multiply with each failure and clutter the backup screen very much.

    I will submit a request, but not sure how this can be solved, since it is tied up to the DNS functionality.

    Thank you for your help.

    The article mentions; "/etc/domainkeys/**example.com**/default (for selector "default")"

    Does this mean it's possible to set a selector name other than 'default'? If so, how?

  • Hi Iain,

    Within Plesk, there's only one DKIM selector by design.

    If you see it necessary, I encourage you to create a new Uservoice request.

    Just wanted to let everyone know an easy workaround to finding DKIM public record if DNS is hosted somewhere else.

    Just enable DNS for the domain for a few seconds so you can see the DKIM generated in the Plesk DNS management. Copy that to clipboard and disable DNS.

    This DKIM record seemed to work perfectly for me when I copied it to my external DNS.

    You could also edit the script and have it send you the key.

    ##send the key by email
    mail -s "DKIM record for ${NEW_DOMAIN_NAME}" youremail@domain.com < $dkim_rec_path/$dkim_rec_prefix${NEW_DOMAIN_NAME}$dkim_rec_fe

    Could I change string "default" at "default._domainkey.example.com"?

    Currently, Plesk allows using only "default" name. There is a corresponding feature request which you may vote to get this implemented.

    Clicking 'mydomain' >> Mail Settings >> Use DKIM spam protection system to sign outgoing email messages 

     

    Produces the following error.  No domainkeys directory is created and the checkbox remains unticked

    DNS is on external provider

    That "hint link" next to "Use DKIM" is not in my mail settings. So how do I find this? I have Googled like crazy, but using the phrase "How to" gives the same page over and over with the exact same "solution". Would be nice if the "updated 21 days ago" would be accurate for more recent Plesk versions.

    CentOS Linux 7.9.2009 (Core)

    I stand corrected. I just now see that this is actually from 18.035 and I have 34. My apologies.
