The OpenDKIM Project is a community effort to develop and maintain a C library
for producing DKIM-aware applications and an open source milter for providing
DomainKeys Identified Mail (DKIM) service.
DKIM provides a way for senders to confirm their identity when sending email
by adding a cryptographic signature to the headers of the message.
This package contains the OpenDKIM mail filter (Milter) for plugging into
Milter-aware MTAs. It implements both signing and verification.
