How to set up DKIM on HMS for domain with multiple names

Hi,
I have been running hms for quite some time and have implemented DKIM for my domain. However my domain has a number of 'names' for which DKIM is not working.
I would appreciate some guidance on how to implement DKIM for the other names my domain goes under.
Regards
Norman

You can't

DKIM only works for domains, not domain names (aliases)

Thanks Matt. Mmmm thought so.
So, I have a number of alias domain names but in hms I have set accounts only to one domain and they receive mail from the different domains. How may I achieve this and use DKIM?
Regards
Norman

Out of interest what happens if you apply the public dkim record of the master domain to the dns of the alias domains (as shown in stage 2 here )?

Create all domains as real domains, and use message forwarding to keep messages on a single domain

Why would you need to do this?

Hi Jimimaseye,
I did try using the master DKIM for the alias domains and the DKIM fails.

Hi Mattg,
I suppose that you may be correct but it seems very redundant.
We have a number of domains which are variations of our public name eg abc.com.au alphabetacam.com abc.com nad are used in email. However any email to John@... needs to be sent to John whatever the domain variation used. I hope that this makes some sense. Maybe we need to rationalise this.

Thank for your help.

And John must reply under the same domain to which he was first addressed? Or can he reply as the master domain?

Hi,
My apologies for taking so long.
John can reply from one domain. So, I guess that's the one I Dkim!

Exactly. The main domain.
