Sorry, I didn't mean to insult those who have been working very hard at
this. If anything, all this hard work has made it very clear to me that
it is hard to ask the right question.

And perhaps I need to review the DKIM website. I went out on the 'limb'
sleep deprived (a newborn has arrived), and as that limb broke, I
remembered that DKIM is not a complete solution.
