seeing the contents of refused relay messages?
Hi, I have my exim setup to refuse all relays, and I've tested it out
with the various relay testers available on the web, with no problems.

Today, somebody tried to bounce a mail off my server. Without going into
too much detail, I have reason to believe that it was a radio station
listener trying to send in a photo of a man with a mullet hairstyle in a
misguided attempt to win a contest. I found myself wishing that I could
have seen the photo, might have been good for a laugh. :-)

So my question is this: Can I refuse all relays and still be able to
see what people were attempting to send through my server?

Thanks.

Generally, no, because the relay refusal is done before the message contents
are even sent to your server.
