hey, question regarding SPF in exim, is it possible to use servers IP when checking SPF?
I want to use exim for outbound SPF check
seems like it doesn't, at least according to (lack of) information I found in wiki
outbound spf check?
I wasn't aware of such thing till today
what's your problem about it?
I would like to implement it in exim
And make shure that e-mail is blocked on my side, not afterwards
good idea... go on.
so, is it possible to make exim use it's ip (not clients) when checking spf?
I suspect that answer is "no"
unless I use some external script for it
hm i cannot find anything about spf in the official docs or i am looking in the wrong place...
I was looking in wiki

yeah, saw that too, but i wanted a reference to the spf condition.
no such thing ind 4.69 and 4.71 documentation
haven't tried 4.7x, but in 4.69 it was compiled as "experimental" or something like that
pardon, I have compiled 4.71
it's still considered experimental there, so that should explain why official doc's doesn't mention it
# exim -bV
Exim version 4.71 #10 built 13-Jan-2010 00:24:44

Probably ndbm
Support for: iconv() OpenSSL Content_Scanning DKIM Experimental_SPF
and nothing regarding such "outbound SPF" setup in 4.71's experimental-spec.txt
If a remote host sends error '554...' to exim after EOD, exim generates a bounce email, which is going to the wrong port 26 (where exim is smarthosting for another MTA on port 25). Delivery of that bounce fails with 'mx is localhost..' because the sender of original mail (MTA1) was indeed localhost. How can I tell exim to route that bounce to port 25?
hello. i have a domain foo.dyndns.org and behind the NAT for that domain, i have a host bar.foo.dyndns.org. *.foo.dyndns.org resolves to foo.dyndns.org. foo.dyndns.org runs a dns server which resolves bar.foo.dyndns.org locally. incoming mail bound for bar.foo.dyndns.org seems to be looping. how do configure exim to relay it to the real bar.foo.dyndns.org? i'm running debian lenny here.
nevermind. got it working. just had to create /etc/exim4/hubbed_hosts. took me a while to find it.
hello guys, I'm getting this message "account@somdomain.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (-1): TCP port "smtp" is not defined for remote_smtp transport"
do you know what could be wrong? I googled it and I found it could be a permissions issue in /etc/services but I don't have /etc/services at all
do you know where should I check to see if smtp is defined for smtp remote transport?
my exim.conf have these lines:
daemon_smtp_ports = 25 : 587
