I encountered How can I set Dkim in phpmailer? recently. The correct answer is simply:

You can't.

Oh, of course I might quote some parts of feature request on Drupal.org and describe with detail why it was moved from 6 to 7 branch, but it really looks like a material for commentary more than an answer. On the other hand, question seems legit, if not of high quality. No close reason really really fits.

So what should I do when I see questions like that?

It will vary by question, but "no" answers are perfectly acceptable. Explain why it can't be done. Suggest alternate solutions. If possible, outline how a patch could be done.

  • OK, did so. Just wanted to make sure.
