hi there
C-Otto
i had a small incident, resulting in 30k and 70k mails in the queue. even with an empty .procmailrc processing is slow, 500 mails per minute
any idea how to make this faster?
oh, the 70k are on the same machine as the receiving exim (other VM, though)
the 30k should be delivered locally, just writing to a maildir

hm asked this yesterday already but got d/ced so if there was an answer i did not get it
sending mail via remote_smtp does require remote to support tls, which option could cause that?
phx
pastebin the definition of your remote_smtp
and google://how+to+ask
my remote_smtp doesn't require the peer to support tls, for example
sanjimori
point taken
http://pastebin.com/aXwK0jYz it's the default split debian configuration
so i figured it must be some other directive that causes this behavior
the logs show something along the lines of "foo@gmail.com R=dnslookup T=remote_smtp defer (-38): a TLS session is required for alt3.gmail-smtp-in.l.google.com [209.85.211.16], but the server did not offer TLS support"
phx
sanjimori, connect to 25/tcp of the said mx EHLO to it and check its capabilities
sanjimori
no STARTTLS in there
phx
though i don't really know why your local exim requires it. check your router and transport for its options
and feel free to use the exim docs for figuring out your log lines and your config
sanjimori
yeah, have been doing that for quite a while now, will try again
removing a few stray directives from transport/30_exim4-config_remote_smtp_smarthost fixed it
thanks for the help
         

phx
could you share those?
never seen such an issue
sanjimori
sure, quite embarrassingly hosts_require_auth=* and hosts_require_tls=* were for some reason left in there on global scope
phx
is that debian default/
?
sanjimori
nah i'm not quite sure how those lines ended up there, checked the defaults and they're not in there
phx
maybe someone is playing a joke on you :)
sanjimori
that someone might be my mushy brain :p
phx

sanjimori
i hope it is, otherwise my box would have been compromised

Hi. I'd like to forward mail sent to my VPS to a yahoo address
Is that easy to do?
henk
easy is relative...
zpmorgan
compare it to 50 push-ups
henk
i'd rather do the email forwarding, but i'm a geek... my girlfriend would probably rather do the 50 push ups, since she is just a computer user :)
it's not relative to push-ups or money or anything, but to you.
zpmorgan
ok, could it preserve the sender address and just modify the subject?
henk
i assume so
zpmorgan
ok, do you know how to set up forwarding to a yahoo address?
phx
it's kinda trivial, zpmorgan
just read the docs
zpmorgan
ok, sure
phx
you'll need a router matching for the emails you want to forward, and you need to manually specify the routing destination (remote server)
zpmorgan
thanks phx

how it's possible to limit mailbox size? like message_size_limit, but for all mailbox.
         

phx
Cult, i
Cult, there's some kind of quota support. though i'd do it with dovecot's delivery agent
Cult
phx, hm, can you tell me name of this option? :)
phx, already found. thank you.

hi guys ... somebody around who knows a bit about exim4 mailboxes and utf-8 messages?
I have a strange behavior .. the content of exim4 mailbox is different than the original message: http://paste.debian.net/73209/
any idea if I could change some exim setting ? .. it looks like that too long lines are broken in more pieces .. with ending "=" character
thank you in advance for any hints :-)
lennard
ironm: google 'quoted printable' ;)
ironm
tnx a lot lennard :-)
