Ok, thanks for checking, it appears that outbound messages weren't being passed to
amavis, I think I've rectified that now.
I can see the message being scanned in the logs, but not necessarily being signed
though. Inbound messages generate warnings such as:
dkim: not signing, no applicable private key for domains ruby-forum.com.....
but my outbound messages just scan clean. I've tried without sender maps and with
limiting them to my domain.

That would make a lot of sense, I'm not sure if it's just the first messages that are
doing it, but I have a feeling that others in a thread are also failing.
Thanks for your input Xavier, I think I need to get over to the amavis or postfix
guys, like Stroller said, to really figure out what is happening.
