hi
I can send mail with mailx (mail blabla@gail.com) from shell
but using a imap client says smtp auth failed
mainlog shows:
2009-12-03 23:12:01 login authenticator failed for localhost (pcmedic.ath.cx) [127.0.0.1]: 535 Incorrect authentication data (set_id=tiago.geada@pcmedic.pt)

hi
i just set up exim for the first time and was even able to send out some mails :-)
but now i keep getting "Sender address rejected: not owned by user"
the problem is that i'm sending with myuser@mymachine but should send with someuser@myhoster.com
is there a way to change the from?

i'm not really on-topic but really don't where else to go. i'm writing a contact form plugin for cms that will be used in many different environments. so far it's configured to use the website's users address as From, but i think this is bad as some spam filters might not like it. Wouldn't it be better to use Reply-To and not touch From at all (let the mailserver handle it)?
er, s/website's users/website's visitors/
henk
nkuttler: i'd always use one of my own addresses for that...
nkuttler
henk: Ok. I can use the cms admin's email as the From address i guess and the visitor's as Reply-To. Makes sense?
letting the mailserver handle it assumes it's configured properly
henk
why do you want to use the visitors address at all?
nkuttler
so that the admin can reply to mails
i mean, i could put it into the body, but that's not really user friendly
(besides the plugin is already used by ~1k sites, so changing that isn't an option)
ok, problem solved, thanks for the input so far

Hey guys I am trying to up the smtp_accept_max = 100
Hey guys I am trying to up the smtp_accept_max limit, but checking exim.conf it doesn't have it in there is that because its a default, and unless it needs to be changed its not there.. e.g shall i just put it at the bottom of the exim.conf and restart ?
         

Simon-
it needs to go in the top section
devans
so am i right in thinking that its not set unless u need to change the default?
im making a change for an admin that aint here and it sucks as i dont know exim
Simon-
if it's not already there, you need to add it, and before any "begin " line
devans
ok let me check the config file out
what do you mean by begin lines?
i dont see any begin lines in exim.conf
just config options and comments
ahh i see one
u mena before the begin acl lines?
Simon-
before any "begin " line
that's what separates the main config section from any of the others
