hi
is it possible to stop exim trying to lookup name for a uid? so mail delivery doesn't anymore fail if a "virtual" uid isn't lookup-able aka. "Failed to get user name for uid"

hi, in what acl makes the 'ratelimit' acl condition most sense when used for limiting hosts in how fast they send? connect? rcpt?
djce
Depends what you're protecting against. If you want to prevent spam runs then I'd go for rcpt.
One spam message might have many recipients, so one message in == many messages potentially received by victims.

djce: we are an isp and have a relay freely usable from our network. some time ago i wrote an email that the server will be shut down and people should look for other ways for sending mail. there are still some hosts sending close to 1000 mails per week via that host. i'm thinking about limiting that to force them to finally find a clean way to send their mail...
djce
Personally (I used to work at an ISP too) I wouldn't bother: just pick a day, send them repeated notices, make sure you take feedback in case there's any really good reason why they can't switch, and if not, just turn it off on the appointed day.
henk
i'd like to increase pressure ;)
but probably you're right and that's the easiest way to go.

hi. I have created a transport and router to force mail for certain domains to be always encrypted. when I try to send email to one of these domains I see "tls_smtp transport called with no hosts set". from the docs, "hosts" would on;y seem to apply to manualroute, not smtp. what have I missed?
djce
Other than that, if it's on a separate host and/or you have an firewall device in front, turn its link down to a really slow speed maybe. <shrug> but again I wouldn't bother.
SlayerXP: sounds like you're a bit confused - manualroute is a kind of router, whereas smtp is a kind of transport.
         

henk
djce: hehe, nice possibility too :) or just introduce delays randomly 'g'
djce
SlayerXP: what driver does your router use? (Presumably the transport is "smtp").
SlayerXP
djce: sec.
djce: http://pastebin.org/332447
djce
sp, what host is it meant to send to? Your router doesn't specify any.
and therefore Exim doesn't know, hence the error you're seeing.
phx
use the dnslookup router
djce
If it's meant to use MX records "as normal" then use a dnslookup router (keeping the domains and transport options as you have them already)
phx
that'll specify the host for the transport
SlayerXP
ahh right, sec.
yes, that works. thankyou. I now have a different problem, but I can start investigating that myself. :)
djce
cool :-) good luck
phx
remember to read the docs
henk
any suggestions where and how to use the ratelimit acl condition sensibly? any documents?
SlayerXP
well, the client server is saying "a TLS session is required for cluster0001.antibodymx.net [217.151.102.251], but the server did not offer TLS support" where I know for 100% certain that that server _does_ offer TSL supprt..... hmm.
djce
SlayerXP: not on port 25, for my IP, it doesn't.
SlayerXP
djce: when I EHLO to it I see STARTTLS advertised.
djce
I don't.
phx
SlayerXP, nc to the MX and EHLO
oh, you did
henk
(Action) doesn't either...
SlayerXP
umm, weird.
yes, you're all right, and I'm wrong.
odd.
djce
Not at all. People have been wrong before ;-)
SlayerXP
okay, that shows me a problem I didn't even know i had, thanks :)
         

djce
I jest.
adac
any ideas what this error in paniclog is about? Cannot lock /var/spool/exim4/input//1OOQoj-00057X-IL-D (37): No locks available
djce
adac: What type of filesystem is that on? Maybe an NFS error - perhaps one of the NFS daemons isn't running maybe?
adac
djce, well I guess I figured it out. It seems that the numfiles assigned to that vhost (openvz) have been to less. So I increased that number and so far there were no more problems

Hi, I have implemented a whitelist acl for my backup MX that only relays mail. I read the addresses from a file is this the correct way to do it or i lsearch used for something specific? "recipients = !lsearch*@;/etc/exim4/allowed_recipients"
