How redirect mail from recipient root to real E-mail?

Hi UG,

How redirect mail from root to root -> to lshulov <at> arabellasw.com <mailto:Leonid.Shulov <at> entropic.com.>?
When I send *mailTest.tx*t:
To: root
From: root
Subject: Exim4 and SMTP test.

         Test work.
*
/etc/aliasses*:
root: lshulov <at> arabellasw.com <mailto:Leonid.Shulov <at> entropic.com.>
 <mailto:Leonid.Shulov <at> entropic.com>
> exim4 -i -t < mailTest.txt

changed only sender but not recipient:

2007-09-30 11:51:36 1IbvSa-000273-CU <= lshulov <at> arabellasw.com U=root P=local S=398
2007-09-30 11:51:40 1IbvSa-000273-CU => root <at> arabellasw.com R=smarthost T=remote_smtp_smarthost
H=<SMTP server> [192.168.xxx.xxx]
2007-09-30 11:51:40 1IbvSa-000273-CU Completed

How can I replace root <at> arabellasw.com <mailto:root <at> entropic.com> to lshulov <at> arabellasw.com <mailto:Leonid.Shulov <at> entropic.com.>?

exim4 configuration is:

Best way to store attachments?


Hi,
I run an Exim server for numerous people, and want to make sure that no one
is sending 'image spam'. The way I want to do this is store all attachments
that are sent (actually I'd just like to store jpegs, gifs or other image
files if possible). I could then go and inspect suspicious looking images
later on.
Is there some way to do this?
Many thanks!
Charlie

Wrong documentation for server_set_id?

Hello,

I have an authenticator that uses the full email address as username, so 
it results in:

     $auth1 = roland <at> client.de
     $auth2 = password

In the authenticator, I have:

     server_set_id = $auth1

The documentation[1] says that this variable is only used for logging 
and for user-defined things. But somehow, it is also embedded in 
outgoing mails, so that it looks like this:

Return-Path: <"roland <at> client.de" <at> server.de>
...
Received: from c183123.adsl.hansenet.de ([213.39.183.123])
	by p15097294.pureserver.info with esmtpa (Exim 4.67)
	(envelope-from <"roland <at> client.de" <at> provider.de>)

...

Is the documentation wrong, or did I understand it wrongly?

Re: Wrong documentation for server_set_id?

Quoting Roland Illig:

> Return-Path: <"roland <at> client.de" <at> server.de>

See
http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch40.html#id2712900
and
http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/ch44.html#SECTsubmodnon
and http://exim.org/exim-html-current/doc/html/spec_html/index.html#toc0394

You probably have "control = submission" somewhere in your ACLs. The
easy fix is to change this to "control = submission/sender_retain".

I agree that the spec is a little unclear about all that...

Oh, and please don't use domains you don't own in your examples (like
client.de and server.de). There are the well-known domains
example.com/net/org for this purpose.

I had a reading problem. I thought that authenticated_id was just some 
random variable name, but looking it up in the index proved the opposite.

Bad greylisting

Hello everyone,

I have a problem with one recipient domain that uses ******* MS Exchange
with following ******* greylisting software:

http://www.grynx.com/projects/greylist/

It breaks up the connection right after sending 451 error:

mail from: tdr1 <at> dr1.promo.pl
250 2.1.0 tdr1 <at> dr1.promo.pl....Sender OK
rcpt to: xxxx <at> polskieradio.pl
451 4.7.1 Please try again later. Connection Greylisted with Greylist
(http://www.grynx.com/projects/greylist/). If you've receive this in
error then check http://www.greylisting.org/
Connection closed by foreign host.

Note the last line.

It dropped connection after signalling "451" instead of waiting for my
Exim server to disconnect.

I suspect this is the reason some mails to that domain get delayed more
than 48 hours -- in logs I get a series of following errors for
approximately that amount of time:

2007-10-01 00:54:09 1IbDzx-000Min-CS == xxxxx <at> polskieradio.pl
R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (-53): retry time not reached for any host

Could that be the case, i.e. could connection drop by remote host right

send mail to a script

Hello,

 I'm tasked with configuring exim to send emails with a specific recipient format to a script to process the emails.

I'm confused with when and how to use routers and transports, directors or system filtering/forwarding
(or some combination thereof).
I see in past emails that I might want to use a pipe in the alias file to do this (and configure transport and
routers in the .conf file), but someone told me to use system filtering.

I've tried reading a lot of documentation, but it's still not clear to me exactly what is the best way to go
about this.
Could someone help start me out or point me to something that might be helpful? Please let me know if I should
give more information.

Thank you...!

Hi TM

You don't say which distro you're using. Debian comes with example
configuration files in /usr/share/doc/exim*. I don't know if they come
with your version of Exim, but if they do then that's the best place to
start.

Not the way they are supposed to. Alot of the true localhost activity is
getting blocked which shouldn't for starters. Am I missing something on the
syntax?

Additionally how do I know when to use {0}{1}, {1}{0}, or nothing at all?
The docs don't seem to explain anything about that very clearly. I have just
been using trial and error and I prefer to actually know what I am doing.

If I didn't misunderstand your question,
the most simple solution could be about like this:

In /etc/aliases just setup an alias:

    local-part:	"|/full/path/to/your/script"

(Of course, replace "local-part" with your special recipient and
/full/...scipt as well with the approbiate path name)

If your config is somewhat "standard", this should work out of the box.
