It means that you've just been caught by a difference between Exim 3 and
Exim 4.

In Exim 3, "White space between -d and the number is optional."

In Exim 4, this is no longer the case. No whitespace. And there are in
fact per-topic keywords for debugging information.

Hello all:
Getting an odd behaviour using Exim and Cyrus IMAP, with Outlook as the
client. Randomly, a user will receive a message “on behalf of” the sender,
which shortly precedes the actual message. The actual message will then
have the user’s address anywhere from 5 to 20 times in the To: field.
This doesn’t actually show up in the actual header, it only displays in the
Outlook display. Despite all the addresses in the To: field, only the two
messages will come into the users inbox.
Rebooting the computer will fix this problem.
Wondering if anyone else using Exim and Outlook has seen something like
this, or if I should (shudder) contact MS.
Thanks
John Watson

I love this tool - CYGWIN is new to me but using exim looks like a REAL
winner here.
I want to be able to use the -f command line option.
I keep trying to use "untrusted_set_sender" in configure
but it just gives me an errior ....

LOG: PANIC DIE
Exim configuration error in line 526:
auth name missing

I put the line at bottom of configure file.

Can you help me?

Thanks

That's why. It should go in the main section.

Probably not.

This is the problem, I had the same thing.

What switches are you starting spamd with? You need to start spamd
with -F0.

From man spamd:

-F 0 | 1
Ensure that the output email message either always
starts with a 'From ' line (1) for UNIX mbox format,
or ensure that this line is stripped from the output
(0). (default: 1)

You haven't got aliases for your main domain in /etc/aliases have you?

What does your exim_mainlog say?

I've seen this sort of thing before. Usually, I just find the IP block
the sending servers are in, and put that in a host reject entry.

For instance, flonetworks (a supposedly legitimate mass-mail company)
used to have a bug in their custom written SMTP delivery software and it
would get confused when reading certain responses from Exim. At that
point flonetworks had between 10 servers sending e-mail, and each one
would have 10 to 15 connections open. I just blocked their network, and
complained to their upstream.

Yeah, that would work for him if the connections all came from one
particular source, but these "optprofessionals.com" people use other
people's open relays to send their junk out.

Actually Dave, I get all sorts of connection attempts from those guys
too....but all the IP's I've bothered to check out seem to be open
mail relays. If they're relaying through someone else's machine,
they can't control what the HELO string is going to be. Or can they?

What are you looking at to see what their HELO message is?

Either way, a good DNS blacklist will stop them.

Adam

Yes, but in exim4, I can only reject at the RCPT TO, and the connections
sit there wading thru hundreds of RCPT TO's each - I'd like to find way
to just DROP the connection with a short delay and a 5xx once it says
"HELO whatever.optprofessionals.com"

You can't drop the connection, but you can stall him.

deny condition = ${if match
{$sender_helo_name}{\N\.optprofessionals\.com$\N}
{${run{/bin/sleep 30}{1}{1}}{0}
}

the ratelimitijng does that fine.. The problem is that there are
hundreds of these connections at once, and if they are all stalling they
are using up resources and process slots...

Actually DNS blacklist lookups get done before anything else. It would cause the connection to drop before they get a chance to do anything

That's Exim 3.

In Exim 4, you control the order, and there isn't at the moment a way to
force a drop in an ACL.

Try following each "save" command with a "finish" command. Example:

Please read the posting guidelines again

1. Don't reply personally, use the list. Individual help counts as
consultancy in my book
2. Don't top post

Try debugging with exim -bt -d <address> and then try submitting with
exim -d <address>.

Please post full log entries for the messages in question, not just the

Sorry, the main section command is:

No "set" to be typed into the configuration file.

They've still got too short a timeout then.

What, pray tell, does this have to do with exim?

Sounds like /var/db/mysql doesn't exist, or you're mispelling
something.

Clearly your chown command is broken. From the little information you
provide it would seem the problem is related to the letter 'y', and
that the chown command seems to eat them. Try re-installing chown from
read-only media. If that doesn't help, and chown continues eating 'y'-s
another alternative would be to setup the mysql database at a in a
directory that does not contain that particular letter. I'd suggest:
