How to use DKIM signing on 4.7

    I would like to configure the outgoing emails to be signed with my dkim private key, however, cannot seem to find any mention of DKIM in the admin area of kayako 4.7.

    In the files there are various mentions, such as:

    But, I'm not sure where to start with making use of it.
    Emails are sent via SMTP and not php mail().

    If anybody knows how to go about setting it up (I don't mind editing the files) I would appreciate it.

    If not, does anybody know what version this became available?

    The only thing I can find about DKIM and kayako is: https://support.kayako.com/article/1197-protecting-your-emails-from-spam-filters

    I found snippets of info regarding DKIM and swift mailer, which is what kayako uses, but so far my attempts at implementing it have been futile. I don't get errors with what I added, but it also doesn't produce DKIM signed headers, so I am obviously missing something or putting it in the wrong files, i.e: https://github.com/swiftmailer/swiftmailer/issues/636

    Kayako refers to it as SwiftMailer and not just Swift, but similar code doesn't cause any errors in kayako, because all the functionality is there.. it's just my lack of knowing the proper placement and if something is missing.

    I have tried the following


    Towards the bottom near:

    $privateKey = file_get_contents('/var/pathtokey/dkimprivatekey.pem');
            $domainName = 'mydomain.com';
            $selector = 'k1';
            $signer = new SwiftMailer_Signers_DKIMSigner($privateKey, $domainName, $selector);
           $this->Mail->addSignature($signer) ;
    /* or */
            $signer = new \SwiftMailer_Signers_DKIMSigner($privateKey, $domainName, $selector);
            $this->Mail->addSignature($signer) ;
