a user on somedomain.com is trying to send a public email to user@somedomain.com ... it's getting trapped locally with other mail addresses no on that box working fine. I figured I could just take the local domain in question out of local_domains... is this true?
I tried setting dc_local_domains='' ...but to no avail.

i'm having some trouble making change to exim4 on debian. i ran update-exim4.conf to create a new /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated , and then after /etc/init.d/restart exim4 OR invoke-rc.d exim4 reload (which says it reloaded the config), it seems to run without my modifications.

alnr: Sounds more like a Debian problem to me
alnr
well, really not debian OR exim problem its a me problem no doubt :) i dont know if the config.autogenerated file is a debian-specific thing or not, but however I start exim, it doesnt seem to be reading it
CunningPike
alnr: I think the autoconfig thing is outside of exim - our installation doesn't have one

in a system filter, is there a trick to add several headers that would be returned by an external command (with ${run})? I'm stuck because I can't manipulate stdout except during the ${run} expansion

I wish the debian guys hadn't messed with the exim config files. I keep getting referred back to debian by some very smart people that don't use debian. sigh..

(Action) still doesn't understand the problem with debian's config... afaict it's not too bad and the layout makes sense, at least what i've looked at so far. and i'm happy i don't have to build a config from scratch.

I think people tend to use it as a cop out, but I digress.
RTFM as we speak

alnr:

oh, sorry
alnr: grep split /etc/exim4/update-exim4.conf.conf if that's true, you need to edit the files in /etc/exim4/conf.d/. if false the /etc/exim4/exim4.conf.template. the command update-exim4.conf will generate the /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated
CunningPike
The problem I have with Debian's config is splitting files like exim.conf into a million pieces. Makes it very difficult for non-Debian people to figure out WTF is going on
henk
CunningPike: but even if you decide to use the split layout, you can read /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated
Simon-
yes and then have no idea which files to modify
and that assumes the person helping has access to it and all the individual files
henk
no. you are definitely right by sending people, who don't understand debian's config layout, back to debian channels. that is not an exim issue. but that doesn't make the debian config bad.
i hate admins who don't know their tools... especially mailadmins. great to know there is yet another mailserver with a clueless admin out there...
CunningPike
Simon-: Exactly

Hi, I basically want to configure Exim such that for every e-mail it receives it runs it through a script which returns either OK or NOT OK and based on that relays the e-mail. I searched in the docs, but could not really find a good example for this.
Anyone a suggestion on how to do this?
