alright I added the file and put an entry in there: sbrx.com: rc4.ridgecrestherbals.com and I turned off rc4 to see if the mail will get to this secondary server. The DNS mx records are set up properly. It doesn't seem that the mail is getting here though. Does it not go to /var/mail like it would in a primary server?
henk
only if it knows about the users pf course... d'uh!

I think it does, but maybe I need to restart exim. I'll give that a try and call it a night.

I have a user using Outlook and today he started getting this error: "Sending' reported error (0x800CCC7D : 'Your outgoing (SMTP) server does not support SSL-secured connections. I this has worked in the past please contact server admin or ISP"
no other users are getting this error
how would I go about debugging this?
also, when this user tries to send from outlook, I get this in the log: 2009-11-23 17:09:04 no host name found for IP address xx.xx.xx.xxx
petemc
thats because you dont have reverse dns set up for that host
mxpxpod
well, the host doesn't have a host name anyway
we also set up this same account on another computer and it sends fine
it's almost as if outlook is trying to send from username@ip_address
but I'm not sure how to veriify that
petemc
you can run the daemon in debug mode
exim -d -bd
mxpxpod
petemc: ok, what am I looking for?
petemc
why it fails
         

mxpxpod
:P thanks
petemc: anything more specific?
petemc
if you cant read it put it in a pastebin and i or someone else here can look at it
mxpxpod
ok, I have to get to a point where it comes up in the terminal again... it has since scrolled by
and, of course, I think they left for the day...
petemc
you can redirect it to a file, it prints to stderr
mxpxpod
I'll have to come back tomorrow when the user is in the office

hmm, so my clamav is looking for stuff in /var/spool/exim4/scan, but the files only seem to be in /var/spool/exim4/msglog
somehow i got it (maybe through the correct restarting of things, but not sure)

Hi all
Can anyone help with /etc/aliases setup?
petemc
probably
fireflyseo
Groovy
I've set up as local only
But I would like to forward to my gmail account.
Do you know how to do this?
petemc
choose something other than local only
choose internet site, but have exim listen only on localhost
fireflyseo
Okay, running sudo dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config now!

hi, i'm willing to plug dkim-filter sendmail milter into exim4 (on debian) (in order to add domain keys to my emails) and i'm a little confused on how to do this.. i think it should be done with a router (or a transport ?), but i'm not sure does someone know of a good guide on this (i'm not willing to compile exim with dkim option)
petemc
one of the debian exim maintainers talked of uploading exim 4.70 to experimental, perhaps it has dkim support
fireflyseo
petemc: Okay, done that. Now what?
lwolf
petemc, i'm willing to keep it lenny :) i've the knowlegde to build exim, but i want a easy to install configuration without any special build. I think that using dkim-filter is the easiest way to do this, i just need a way to plug a sendmail milter in exim
petemc
lwolf: not something ive done, maybe someone else here as tho
fireflyseo: edit /etc/aliases
fireflyseo
petemc: okay, I'm just not sure what to write. I did ask Google :( Sorry to be a pain!!
petemc
original_destination: new_destination1, new_destination1
gah, new_destination2
so if you want mail to root to be directed to bob and jane@google
root: bob, jane@google.com
fireflyseo
Petemc: Thanks so much for that! Basic I know! :)
petemc
np
         

fireflyseo
petemc: Soz, last question, how do I send a test message to check it works?
petemc
echo hello | mail root
with mailx installed
otherwise you can simulate it with exim4 -bt root
fireflyseo
w00t, it works! :)

Hi guys. Im trying to send email through my cpanel exim mail server. I am doing this using a php script that is on another server. Im using credentials to login but I am getting errors in the exim_maillog saying can not relay. Why would it does this when I am logged in?

I would like to save all mail messages with a list-id header in a folder structure mapping the list id but starting with the tld, could this be done easily with a filter?
