I am running Centos v6 and for ease of install I am looking to use YUM to install OPENDKIM.

It shouldbe as simple as "yum install opendkim" but this does not find it.
So a list of the EPEL repositories shows the following  :-
[root@mail-02 etc]# yum repolist
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, refresh-packagekit, security
Loading mirror speeds from cached hostfile
 * base: mirrors.manchester.icecolo.com
 * extras: mirrors.manchester.icecolo.com
 * updates: mirrors.manchester.icecolo.com
repo id                        repo name                                  status
base                           CentOS-6 - Base                            6,346
extras                         CentOS-6 - Extras                             17
updates                        CentOS-6 - Updates                         1,075

So obviously it is not in this list. Does anyone know what EPEL repository I need to enable and the best way to do this so I can use YUM to install OPENDKIM ?
I have found the following but it does not watch up to the list of list if I do a  "yum repolist all"    - see information below

opendkim rpm

You do not have the EPEL repository installed at all.

You just have the CentOS repositories.

Here is how to install EPEL (and remi):

Do I then need to get YUM to update this, after I have run the command in the document  ?

After installing the EPEL repository your local yum installer will know where to find opendkim.

So retry "yum install opendkim" once EPEL is installed.
