I wonder, is is best to route email through a antispamgateway using 2 nics or not
jgh_
"not" being not routing? not routing though this gateway? though any gateway?
YamakasY
nah I mean, I have a wan IP now which I NAT for outbound IP and n internal IP both on seperate subnets
I did using one but to make sure your traffic is natted well I thought this might be best
what does generate the message-ID containing the domainname ? Exim or the client ?
jgh_
unless explicitly overridden, the first one in the sequence of operations that bothers to. Some clients are too stupid to do so
YamakasY
I thought so, I think hotmail is picky on it when the ID contains another domain than the sender domain
but I'm unsure

Running Debian8 and exim4 and recently it is trying deliver local 'mailuser' to the smarthost
henk
kc4zvw: go on?
kc4zvw
henk: it will deliver to local mail spool if username@localhost
henk
sounds like you broke something
         

kc4zvw
but tries to send to smarthost if addressed as username but incoming mail is still all working
yes but not sure what other than debian upgrades

if we use <serialize_hosts> feature on our server, and remote SMTP has a single DNS A entry has multiple IPs... does EXIM's serialize per FQDN or IP?
jgh_
why not try it and see what gets put in the hints DB ? Mind, given the usecase for it, it was only envisaged for cases where a single possible path was present
that is, 1200Bd dialup connections. Nobody cares these days about parallel TCP connections
oozbooz
jgh_, correct ... we do have 56k Modem (8000/8000 baud) nowdays... but some of our clients who on 1200Bd asking us to slow down and capping number of concurrent connections

good afternoon, I had a problem with an exim server which had its I/O blocked for 5 minutes, in the log, I could see many message about "Too many connections", is there a way to tune exim not to wait for I/O if it can deliver the mail directly?
