is there a way to have exim listen for messages on localhost and relay them to my smtps server?
I want exim to be in charge of the authentication to the smtps server so the mail clients sending mail to localhost won't have to provide authentication
i also don't want to have the clients be involved in the ssl/tls stuff either.
so basically client->localhost(smtp)->enterprise(smtps)
Simon-
the default configuration will accept email from localhost, just add a router that delivers it to the other host
danielbw
Please keep in mind that I have not used Exim before, I am just seeing if it's possible

yes it's possible
danielbw

oops

Simon-
the website has extensive documentation
there's an smtp transport; it supports tls

we have defer sender_domains = foo.example.com // spf = softfail:err_temp to deal with temporary DNS breakage. but one of The Planet's DNS caches is giving us SERVFAIL on the TXT lookup. would err_perm cover that and cause a defer?

hi, i using debian 5.0.4 end exim4. i using google apps on mails, but, in localdomain, i tried send message and received this error: 2010-03-11 10:58:02 H=(pc_name) [x.x.x.x] F=<mail@contacts.mainserver.com> rejected RCPT <xxxxxxxx@gmail.com>: relay not permitted
how to solve it?
:(
anybody?
henk
little_oak: tell exim to relay from certain machines or to certain domains. or let authed users send mail everywhere. and be patient! you have only been here 5 minutes and already start nagging :-p
little_oak
lol

Hi. I'm on debian trying to get exim to act as a smarthost, and I can set it up based on client IP adresses, but I want to set it up so all tls authenticated clients can relay mail
thenthenio
I have 2 users both with the same .procmailrc in their home $HOME: one gets R=localuser T=local_delivery the other ?procma
Juul
i haven't really been able to find any info on this

I have 2 users both with the same .procmailrc in their home $HOME: one gets R=localuser T=local_delivery the other gets:R=procmail T=procmail. Why?!?! Where could be the difference?
djce
thenthenio: We have no way of knowing without seeing your configuration, but I suggest you start with something like "exim -d+all -bt user1", then the same for user2, and compare the two.
henk
Juul: that's the default. and you can find info on this if you just read the debian config...
Juul
henk, oh, i'll give it a try then. thanks
thenthenio
djce: Thanks, exactly what I needed: asuggestion!
little_oak
thanks
solved it
Juul
got it working :-) thanks again!

I want to have email for local accounts (root, etc.) to be delivered locally, everything else to go out via a smarthost. there isn't an option like this when using dpkg-reconfigure for exim4. Does anyone have this setup with exim4 ? Right now everything relays to the smarthost (Exchange server) and I don't want that.
CunningPike
mns: You don't have a redirect router?
petemc
mns: there is an option with debconf for local delivery with smarthost
mns
petemc: I didn't see that, I'll try again with dpkg-reconfigure.
CunningPike: what is a redirect router ? The messages just go from my system to the exchange server, why do I need another router in between ?
CunningPike
mns: Um, I thought you wanted some messages to not do that
petemc
router in this context is exim terminology for the bit of the config that decides how a mail is routed
mns
petemc: ok that makes it a little clearer. I've not used exim before.
I tried dpkg-reconfigure exim4-config what it has is "smarthost, no local delivery" "local delivery, not on network", "send via smarthost, receive via fetchmail/SMTP" "internet site, mail received/sent via SMTP" or "no configuration at this time". nothing in there about "smarthost, unless local"
this is on Debian/Squeeze
