Well. I've nearly given up on DomainKeys :-( (Using its results)
Using them for testing for valid emails is a big hit and miss problem. If I
get a "pass" then I'm 100% its a pass , but if it fail or alike then it pay
be a pass or a fail.
From the Domains which have had DK information below tested on them maybe
50% actually give proper passes (even coming straight from yahoo.com
Does anyone know if yahoo have any comments about even yahoo.com DK testing
failing on yahoo.com emails which came from yahoo, or should we just throw
DK away at the moment until the designer of DK (Yahoo) gets it right? Anyone
from Yahoo on this list want to comment? Someone comments a while back that
yahoo news that yahoogroups where failing but valid yahoo.com is failing 50%
of the time for me :-(

The results are likely caused by mailing lists and forwarders. We know
they cause problems.
Keep in mind that this stuff is all experimental. We're learning where it
works, what breaks down, etc. So far the big problem is mailing lists and
forwarders that don't re-sign messages when re-mailing them. Probably
most or all of the domains you listed are covered by that situation. What
you're really testing is MTA/MUA integration, and helping us find cases
where the spec breaks down. We expect verification failures in the short
term as the glitches are ironed out and the software gets wider coverage.
What is it you're trying to achieve? What is it you want DK to do for you
today, versus some date in the future where it's universally supported and
