/etc/apt/sources.list.d/ is for putting text files ending with .list, 
that add sources to apt, not for downloading .deb files to it. Apt is 
warning that you have a file there that is not a source.

You probably want something like:

echo "deb http://backports.debian.org/debian-backports squeeze-backports main" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/squeeze-backports.list
apt-get update
apt-get install -t squeeze-backports opendkim
