hi
ksnp
hi, i am trying to do string manipulation to delete spam, by appending two strings which works with exim -be but not the actual config.
JSM87
Im trying to send email to a hotmail.co.uk address. It is not being received. Is there a log that can tell me if its been sent successfully other than exim_mainlog
I really want to see if its being reject
ksnp
servers that do that are bad servers especially if they are public, i have seen some disgusting rotten privacy violating bastards do that, who are equally disgusting spamming scumbags
its possible some disgusting bastards are causing that ha ?
henk
where do i tell exim what timeout to use for the dnslists command?
pesadilla2
hello, somebody have this acl? senders only can send with address indicated in "mail" ldap field
phx
authenticated senders you mean, right?
muffnerf
control = submission/domain= # will do it, assuming sender authenticates w their e-mail address
pesadilla2
yes phx
thanks muffnerf i will revise it
but users login with user/password and not with mail
         

phx
what do you mean by "not with mail" ?
and by user/password do you mean SMTP AUTH?
i have a similar rule, but for an SQL database, not ldap
i can give that as an example, so you can modify it for ldap
pesadilla2
ok perfect, thanks
phx
http://pastebin.com/d237be9b1
that validsender() is a storproc which checks the sender_address for the the authid, both as its primary address and among its aliases
pesadilla2
thank you very much, I appreciate your kindness
henk
where do i adjust the timeout for dns lookups with dnslists?
phx
henk, this is the dnslists= feature, right?
henk
phx: yep
phx
mhm, i don't see it in the docs
henk
me neither...
petemc
i would imagine its decided by the dns server you're talking, like other lookups
phx
there is a general 30sec dns timeout, but lookup clients might use a different value
petemc
exim just uses your operating systems lookup facility
phx
that's most probably getaddrinfo()
henk
hm, so nothing i can do about it...
phx
i expect some envvar or whatever to affect it, but i'm just unable to find it
petemc
the server decides the timeouts, aiui
phx
petemc, the client still can stop waiting for the answer, generating a lower timeout
dadams
debian etch user here with intermittent 220 response delay issue, looking for assistance, let me know if you want full problem description or specific details
petemc
how long of a delay?
phx
and for what command?
         

dadams
if I run "telnet [IP] 25" onto the server, conenction is sub-1second, however 220 normally comes back in 3 seconds after rfc1413check timesout (fine) but sometimes takes around 13seconds or more
petemc
you can run the daemon in debug mode to see what its doing
dadams
A nagios check of the SMTP service finds it timing out too with a timeout limit on the test of 10 seconds
phx
disable ident check first
and yes, do what petemc says, run exim in debug mode and check out what makes this delay
dadams
I dropped it from 5 to 3, would setting it to 0 make any difference when its fine 95% of the time anyway?
ok, will do, ta
phx
seriously, do you know what is ident checking?
dadams
yes
and if timeout is set to 3 (as it is) then it can't be causing a 13 second delay
becuase if it doesn't get a response in 3 secs, it'll move on regardless
phx
last time i seen any point of ident checking was like in the mid 90s
dadams
we do run identd
phx
yeah. that's why you should do what petemc sayd
dadams
anyway, i willtry both the above, thank you
phx
yeap, that's you. and what about the rest of the world?
dadams
i know what yuo're saying, but point is it times out even on connections from our machines which run identd
so i doubt it is related

Hi,
I've just migrate from postfix to exim on a web servers, and some people are building emails with php. Headers To, Cc and Bcc sometimes separate destinations by ';' instead of ','
phx
; is fine afaik
and CC and BCC are handled by the MUA, not by the MTA
beber
and exim fail to interprate them as : 'malformed address'
phx
the MTA recieves multiple RCPT TO: commands
beber
php does run sendmail -t -i
phx
beber, could you run exim in debug mode and post the output to some pastebins?
beber
ok
phx: I've made a wrapper to see what is created, I'll get back to you when getting datas

hi all - my retry config is set to 'F,6h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,7d,6h', hwoever I have mail that's 9 days old in my queue. Why is that?
phx
pookey, check your logs. probably it's still can't be sent out
pookey
phx: yeah, I expet that's teh case, but I've told it to retry for onlyu 7 days.. shouldn't a bounce be generated after that?
if I take one of these messages, and run 'exim -d -M <id>' , it seems it does give up retrying, and generate a bounce
beber
phx: I have a test case
phx
cool
beber
http://www.meleeweb.net/~beber/pb_syst.txt
phx
beber, that's improper. use To: and CC:
to might only contain 1 address afaik
beber
that's a case test
and just a header given to sendmail -t
phx
well, a test for a broken case :)
sendmail -t constructs the RCPT TO command by that header seemingly
beber
so that's always ok to have many To: destination
(with -t)
phx
but honestly, i suggest sending mails over SMTP, not sendmail
sendmail has the habbit of using the real user, which is invalid in the virtualuser scope of the mail system
and when someone does a sender address verification your mail will get rejected
beber
php mail() function on linux use local sendmail
www user is trusted so user spoofing is ok
phx
and exactly that's why people are using ssmtp or address rewriting to get rid of this sideeffect
it's not about the trustedness of the www user
it's about to non-existantness of the www user in the virtual address scheme usually
beber
ah ok
so, is there a way in exim to consider ';' as ',' ?
phx
well, you still haven't shown the debug output i've been asking for
beber
sendmail -d+all is ok ?
phx
should be
but
saint_
hi all ...
phx
mhm, maybe the exim deamon recieving it... i'm not sure on that
beber
I think i've pointed the issue

Hey.. can someone explain to me how does SPF works ?
I added SPF lines in my DNS, but I keep receiving bounce back from junk email that people sent with my domain name
if it's not working, does it mean that the server they are sending email TO is not looking at SPF rules ?
Beber`
