Hello!
How to limit rate of _outgoing_ mail ?
I have about 150 000 messages in queue which should be delivered to mail.ru system.]
Currently, my IP is blocked due to incoming rate limit on mail.ru system.
I'd like to limit outgoing rate for this domain.

Bogdar: find who is sending spam through your server, apply shotgun, repeat as necessary

gordonjcp, it's normal batch mail from my site
to the users who agree to receive such kind of mail

Hey Guys, one of my users suddenly started getting spam from one specific account but it looks like it's something on our network causing it, how can I track it down?
netstatic
is there any way to redeliver a message using an archived spool file?

netstatic
thnx, taking a look now
hrm, my messages in in exim's spool file format
petemc
oh, they're still in the queue ?
         

netstatic
no, on disk
that's the crappy part
petemc
are they delivered to a mailbox, or in the queue?
exims spool == the queue
netstatic
they have been delieved.. a while ago.. and a copy is left as archives
so i have flat -H and -D files
petemc
if they're delivered, why do you still have -H and -D files?
you shoudlnt..
netstatic
they're copies
we archive all email
to disk
petemc
as in, you take a copy of the queue ?
netstatic
yeah
petemc
why?
netstatic
basically a copy of the message in the queue

petemc

in any case, i guess you could copy thise files back to the spool dir, then have exim deliver them
ive not done that, but it might work
netstatic
the problem with that is they'll be delivered to all the people
instead of just the person i want
petemc
you can add recipients or mark recipients as delivered
netstatic
ah, that's a good idea
petemc
or create a router that does what you need
netstatic
good idea.. thanks, i'm going to try to work that out

dealing with a pesky exim set-up here... it's running on two ports (25 and 587) and the latter requires authentication. connecting to the latter port and authenticating works just fine and it reports it has successfully added my mail to the queue... but then a "mail delivery failed: returning message to sender" mail is generated and dispatched
doesn't even try sending the e-mail, but I have authenticated and the mail was accepted in the queue. any reason that could be causing this?
all outgoing mail bounces :(
petemc
what do the logs say?
