I've got a problem configuring mailman. This page https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Mailman says "We have configured Exim4 or Postfix to recognize all emails from Mailman. So, it's not mandatory to make any new entries in /etc/aliases" but exim -bt -v mailman@tkdnet.org return "Unroutable address"
I've got a router and a transport but the addresses aren't being recognised/handled. Can anyone help me debug my exim config
Actually, having just found out the -d flag, it doesn't seem to be ever considering my mailman_router - how can I find out why not?
petemc
exim -bV , check the actual config its using
andyjeffries
Ahhh, it's using /var/lib/exim4/config.autogenerated - I don't know how to recreate that file, but that's really helped - thank you!
petemc: Hmmm, found the command to regenerate that file, but it still doesn't find the router...
petemc
where is the router?
andyjeffries
It's OK, I've figured it now. The seems to be some confusion (maybe as a result of upgrades on the server over many years) whether it's using split configs or not. But basically I think I've got it working now.
petemc
cool
romel_
anyone?

hello, why I can't send mails out of my domain, just receive an error lookup failed and Unrouteable address
in my remote_smtp routed I've line interface = ${if exists {/etc/mailips}{${lookup{$sender_address_domain}lsearch*{/etc/mailips}{$value}{}}}{}}
anybody alive?

hi everyone, al the mail i can send from my exim server and with my domain name are detected as spam by big majors of mails (Google, Yahoo, etc), is there a remedy?
         

henk
FabTG_: find out why...
are you sending from a dialup-iprange? do your dns and rdns match? what do the other mailservers tell you?
FabTG_
i have a return message that tells the spam filter has blocked my mail
henk
FabTG_: i hope you are not going to behave like the random noob: ask more than one question, only get the last question answered...
ah, too late, you already did...
FabTG_
henk: sorry ;)
in fact i have a little more investigated i got this message: SMTP error from remote mail server after initial connection: host d.mx.mail.yahoo.com [209.191.88.254]: 553 Mail from 93.13.230.63 not allowed - 5.7.1
+[BL21] Connections not accepted from IP addresses on Spamhaus PBL;
this only happens when i reply to a message
ok i found the answer, this is because of my residential ip adress ;) i should use a smarthost for some domains
henk
hm, thought so...
pentanol
hi there, does anybody knows why I can't send mails out of my domain? http://codepad.org/dHwPyTeU I twice wheck my mail-routing, looks like it well, perhaps I missed something there my configuration http://codepad.org/jqOxhj1R
henk
pentanol: your exim does not know how to send mail to gmail.com...
pentanol: dns is a possible error source.
try dig gmail.com MX

can someone help me to set up exim4 with dovecot?
have users and domains in a SQL database
phx
Guest59883
I war there :-)
LOG: H=[127.0.0.1] F=<ab@example.com> rejected RCPT <bc@example.com>: Unknown user
don't know what to do
phx
run exim in debug mode and check what it does
and no, don't paste it here, neither on a pastebin, you have to read through the debug output and check what it's doing actually and understand it
Guest59883
if I go into SMTP and type in EHLO, there is no AUTH service. May be this is my problem?
phx
Guest59883, no. that also a problem, but not this one
Guest59883
ok, thx
henk
phx: you really expect a lot of initiative and understanding.
phx: is that policy for the channel or just you?
phx
henk, i guess just me. i think its primarily the person's task to develop his brain's capabilities to such an extent so he can understand processes on their own
Guest59883
henk, this is policy for the unix and linux community ;-)
henk
phx: ok
Guest59883: to some extent, yes.
phx
Guest59883, i suggest reading the exim documentation at least two times in order to understand exim's functionality
Guest59883
phx, I'm doin' it now, but there are a lot of configuration possibilities and the syntax seems to be confusingly to me
         

phx
first get the idea right, syntax is secondary
after you get the idea how exim works and what it does, start to pay attention to how to achive it, that's the effective configuration
Guest59883
that's right.
thank You

its possible to have different email addresses point to different servers via the mx records a@abc.com to hotmail and b@abc.com to mydomain.com ?
petemc
no
mx records dont consider local parts
Darkness
.... rejected RCPT <mk@auktionsvermittler.de>: Unrouteable address
what should I change to route this adress?
henk
your config
Darkness
of course. Exim or DNS?
henk
the one which causes the error of course...
Darkness
henk, there is no info about which config causes this.
henk
Darkness: exim can give you more info... read the docs on its debugging options.
ries
hey Guys, how I do debug this error? 2010-03-22 16:07:23 H=rotring.dds.nl [85.17.178.138]:45706 I=[20.86.10.14]:25 F=<ries@vantwisk.nl> rejected RCPT <bpm@bpm.org>: No Such User Here"
The account does exist on teh server, it's just that exim thinks it doesn't
joschi
ries: run `exim -bhc 85.17.178.138` and try to "send" a mail for the recipient
ries
joschi: I see some stuff, should I do anything??
joschi: got it alfready
it ends with LOG: H=rotring.dds.nl (mail) [85.17.178.138] F=<ries@vantwisk.nl> rejected RCPT bpm@bpminstitute.org: No Such User Here"
joschi
ries: and you should see a lot of messages before that last line
ries
joschi: correct... I don't see anythign special there, is there somethign I should lookout for?
wait wait...
joschi
ries: failed lookups for example
ries
I do get this : >>> virtual_aliases_nostar router declined for bpm@bpminstitute.org
joschi
if the output does not contain enough information for you, read http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch49.html#SECTlogselector
and set log_selector accordingly
ries
ok, I set log_selector to +all
I see about the same in the logfile or in the test
I will let the planet solve it
I don't see anything weird
