DKIMproxy is an SMTP-proxy that signs and/or verifies emails, using the
Mail::DKIM module. It is designed for Postfix, but should work with any mail
server. It comprises two separate proxies, an "outbound" proxy for signing
outgoing email, and an "inbound" proxy for verifying signatures of incoming
email (administrators can decide if they want to run both, or only one of
them). With Postfix, the proxies can operate as either Before-Queue or
After-Queue content filters, and they also can be chained with content
filter proxies like Amavis, which is the current default configuration of
the package.

dkimproxy (1.4.1-1) unstable; urgency=low
* New upstraem version.
* Standard-Version is now 3.9.1.

(Closes: #611516).
* Falls back to "localdomain" if no FQDN is setup correctly in the system
thanks to Corey Hickey <> (Closes: #611513).

on the system (Closes: #595700).

they are also removed upstream.

dkimproxy (1.2-5) unstable; urgency=low
* v1.2-5: Now depends on the ssl-cert package.
* v1.2-5: Added the dkimproxy user to the ssl-cert group.
* v1.2-5: Using root:ssl-cert for the dkimproxy keys ownership
(Closes: #525665).
* v1.2-5: Symlink /var/lib/dkimproxy/private.key and
* v1.2-5: Bumped Standard-Version
* v1.2-5: Now shipping only one version of the daemons manpage, as since the
upstream author generate its own it was shipped twice in dkimproxy 1.2-x.
* v1.2-4: Fixed the $DOMAIN part of the init.d script.
* v1.2-4: Corrected a typo in debian/defaults
* v1.2-4: Added --min_servers param description in the dkimproxy manpage.
* v1.2-4: Added DKIMPROXY_{IN,OUT}_MIN_SERVERS option in debian/defaults and
the init.d script now uses it. Default is set to 5, which is optimized for
a single core server, as discuss in upstream mailinglist.

dkimproxy (1.2-3) unstable; urgency=low
* v1.2-1:
- New upstream version.
- This new version removes dkimverify and dkimsign as they are already in
the libmail-dkim-perl package in a newer version, also now, man pages of
dkimproxy are referencing the pages of libmail-dkim-perl (Closes: #539497).
- Fixes the README.Debian (Closes: #534650)
- Fixed the watch file according to the new download page.
- Now there's a /etc/default/dkimproxy where you can decide which proxy to
start (, dkimproxy.out or both), where you store the private
key for outbound signing, which username to run the daemon under, and
what domain to use for signing (Closes: #519220, #493816).
* v1.2-2:
- Sets the parameters back like where they was in the Lenny version.
* v1.2-3
- hostname -d is now the default again for outgoing signing, as it's
otherwise breaking previous installs and that it really seems to be the
obvious "normal" setup with holding the key entry.
2009-01-12 - Scott Kitterman <>
dkimproxy (1.0.1-8.1) unstable; urgency=medium
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Rename /usr/bin/dkimsign to dkimproxy-sign to avoid conflict with
python-dkim dkimsign (Closes: #511037)
- Rename debian/man/dkimsign.1 to dkimproxy-sign
- Update debian/manpages
- Correct references to dkimsign.1 in the packages other man pages
