I've not done this before. Here's what I did. Please see if this looks

[root]# telnet mail.mydomain.com 25
Connected to mail.mydomain.com.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 mail.mydomain.com ESMTP
HELO mail.mydomain.com
250 mail.mydomain.com
MAIL FROM suzie at mydomain.com
250 ok
RCPT TO suzieprogrammer at gmail.com
250 ok
DATA testing
354 go ahead
250 ok 1267194591 qp 11432
221 mail.mydomain.com
Connection closed by foreign host.

I didn't receive any message. Time for domainkeys?
