Hi
is there a way to notify $local_part@$domain that a mail have been drop/discard/deny ?
when $local_part@$domain is not the sender but the recipient
phx
tricky question, i don't know that
i personally fakereject/deny messages, and these messages are delivered into the Junk folder
beber
ah yes
that's a solution
But, i'd like to reject them
to not fakereject virus
but just send a summary of operations
djce
beber: firstly, your plan won't work if you drop/deny at connect/helo/mail time.
But assuming you don't do any of those things,
i.e. that all your rejections are at rcpt/pre-data/data time,
then it sounds like you could periodically grep the reject log, work out who might be interested in each rejection, and tell them.
beber
yep
not so efficient, but possible too
djce
Certainly not something that Exim can do for you - apart from helping you ensure that whatever data you want ends up in the reject log.
beber
that's mainly for acl/data check
other parts are ok

hi I need some advice/help with making exim4 able to relay emails to an exchange server.
I have an external mail domain domain.com governed as mail exchanger by ms exchange server.
I want to setup exim so I can send email to the domain.com from intranet machine.
that machine happens to be exim server.
I have no idea what I am doing wrong.
phx: I remember you tried to help, and we didn't go through it.
are you here ?
henk
but you think something is wrong already?
         

sobersabre
yes.
I setup'ed my exim as user of a smarthost.
henk
but you are not telling us why or what... so we can't help.
sobersabre
henk: I think of a discussion and questions for me.
henk
sobersabre: i think of you stating your problem as thoroughly as possible. we are not gonna pull every piece of information out of your nose. YOU want help. YOU do the work.
sobersabre
of course. no problem.
henk
sobersabre: read the smart questions howto. it might help.
sobersabre
henk: I've read it and turned people to read it often ;-)

henk
sobersabre: looks like you need to read it again...
sobersabre
let's start over.
phx
sobersabre, i'm around, but i've got work to do
and listen to henk, he's a lot better than me :)
sobersabre
ok. post-dinner :)
there's a network 192.168.1.0/24
there's a domain controller srv, aka mail exchange server, responsible for domain.com, and domain.local dns, and mail domains.
it currently works.
it doesn't allow external smtp connections.
sorry doesn't allow IMAP/POP
henk: is it clear so far ?
henk
phx: huh? regarding what? exim? hard to believe...
sobersabre: i think so, yes.
sobersabre
now, I have internal machine (codename: projects) with project management software.
I want this machine to run exim, and to send the emails to domain.com (my own domain) as one of this domain's users.
or as regular domain users.
I initially thought I should setup exim only, to use exchange (srv) as smarthost.
but apparently it doesn't work.
the error I'm getting "Client was not authenticated".
this means I need to setup something on srv.
this is where I'm stuck (no idea how one does manage exchange)
If somebody here did something I do now, I'd be happy.
google shows articles about an oposite situation:
exim is the main domain server ("upfront"), and exchange is the one who's using it as smarthost.
am I explaining ok ?
phx
sobersabre, start checking exchange's settings, allaround
sobersabre
I checked and I don't even understand based on what did it reject authentication.
maybe I should add the linux machine into the domain, and then it will be ok...
phx
not really
you can specify smarthosts and ranges from where exchange doesn't require authentication
sobersabre
phx: I don't understand: if exchange needs authentication - how do I make sure it works ?
I did setup username/password on the exim server.
so I expected something like "bad pass" or something, from exchange.
but I got "client not authenticated", and I don't understand what it means - "client" == user trying to authenticate, or "client" == computer trying to connect
phx
not really exchange that needs auth, but your setup needs it
sobersabre
I have created a file /etc/exim4/client.passwd
(IIRC)
in the format: *:username:password
henk
sobersabre: and how do you use that file in exim?
         

sobersabre
henk: what do you mean how do I use it ?
henk
sobersabre: show us that part of the config, where that file is used.

hello, is there an equivalent of helo_allow_chars in exim 4.71?
2010-05-25 14:21:08 Exim configuration error in line 851 of /usr/local/etc/exim/configure: option "helo_allow_chars" unknown
Simon-
it should still work
kian
hmm, perhaps it needs to go somewhere else in the file then
Simon-: thank you, put it in the wrong section
