Thanks for the reply Mark.

>>The Mail::DKIM seems to be in error, it does not want to sign such
header fields. If it happens to one of the DKIM-required header
fields i.e. a 'From' header field, the resulting signature does
not list the 'from' in its 'h' tag, which could be treated as a
DKIM requirement violation.

But, libdkim signs all the headers even if there is a space between the header field name and colon.

The "h=" tag in the DKIM-Signature headers contains all the headers being signed.

When the dkim library had properly signed the mail, why is it the  verification status of Gmail and AOL are "hardfail" and "none" respectively whereas yahoo's verification status is "pass".

Can anyone, please help in this issue.

Gmail is showing hardfail as its verification status and AOL is showing DKIM:none as its status.

Is, space between header field name and colon is not legal?

Can anyone please help in this issue.

I suspect a mem leak in libmilter.  All milters I've tried which use
libmilter show a similar vm usage pattern.
