Exim smarthost with DKIM

My employer has started the process of certification with Return Path, and I've been roped in to setting up DKIM, SPF, SenderID etc. so that we are compliant with the certification requirements.

Our current e-mail server is qmail, and I'm really not too keen on messing about with the configuration files there. As a safer alternative, I've decided to set up a smarthost relay that only does the DKIM signing. I tried and gave up on Postfix - struggled with understanding the configuration files - and eventually found Exim.

Now, I've got the relaying working perfectly so far. I am NOT running an open relay, my smarthost is configured to only accept SMTP connections from the existing mailserver, and not publicly accessible anyway.

The problem I'm having is figuring out exactly where in exim's configuration file I am supposed to configure the DKIM signing options. I've read the official exim documentation and I'm fairly sure about the syntax, I just can't figure out where the options go.

Any suggestions please?
