550 Relay Not Permitted

we are getting a number of:

does not like recipient.
Remote host said: 550 relay not permitted

checked for IP stauts and it is not flagged or listed as banned, there would be no reason however I double checked and there were no issues there.

Can someone suggest if this is a server issue?

Not Permitted To Relay
Using a custom mx entry as well

So basically it due to the MX change, it looks like it sees any incoming email (addressed to local domain) as relaying.

< #5.1.1 SMTP; []:36995 is currently not permitted to relay>

EXIM errors:

2007-05-19 09:39:32 []:37074 I=[]:25 F=<> rejected RCPT <>: []:37074 is currently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on in your email client.

When Sending Mail To New Server, 550 Relay Not Permitted Is Returned. Simple Fix?
I've been working on this for some time now, but I'm not sure on how the settings were transfered over to this server. I wish I was there when it was done.

Anyways, we got a new server and we transfered all the accounts to the new one. The old one is gone. When people send emails to their email accounts on the server, this is returned:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification

Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 9): 550 relay not permitted ....

"Currently Not Permitted To Relay"
I had this issue some minutes ago, i was trying to send a large email list using outlook, the email client didn't show any errors and delivered everything ok.. but mails never go out of the box... so I decided to search the logs and found this:

2007-08-15 14:07:41 ( [xx.xx.xx.xx] F=<> rejected RCPT <>: ( [xx.xx.xx.xx] is currently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on in your email client.
2007-08-15 14:07:42 unexpected disconnection while reading SMTP command from ( [xx.xx.xx.xx]
Authentication required was active at the email account configuration, everything was well configured.. it was a server wide error.

Searching over the net i found this solution: ran /scripts/mailperm and after that I added "" to /etc/relayhosts list, restarted Exim and the problem was resolved, all mails were delivered OK.

My question is, what is the function of /etc/relayhosts, /scripts/mailperm (fixing mailbox permissions?) and /etc/localdomains ? Is it OK to have in /etc/relayhosts list?

Mail Error - Gid 99 Is Not Permitted
I checked everywhere and could find the fix i need so i hope you guys can help me out.

I often get this error when someone on my server tries to send an email:

A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:
Gid 99 is not permitted to relay mail, or has directly called /usr/sbin/exim instead of /usr/sbin/sendmail.

Any clue on how i could fix this. If you need more info just tell me ill do my best to responde.

This is what I got from the tech support:


I able to manage to mount your old var, tmp, usr, and even the old root partitions but the home partition were unsuccessful.

I've tried mounting your old home partition but i was unsuccessfull which might be a bad sector of the drive.

Ping: Sendmsg: Operation Not Permitted
I've noticed that my site has delays every few seconds when using the database. At least 2-4 seconds. Now the load is 0.05 basically.

So I did a ping from my webserver to the db server and got:

PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.138 ms
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.086 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.104 ms
ping: sendmsg: Operation not permitted

I then turned off iptables and it works fine now. How to know what's causing this?

Samba Chown Operation Not Permitted
I'm currently running SAMBA on one my linux servers, and wanting to connect to it from another linux server.

1. Do I need to install SAMBA on the connecting server (client-side)?

2. I can see/mount the SAMBA folder just fine, I can delete,make,etc. The only thing I can't do on the client side is change ownership of a file or folder... even if I'm logged in as root.

What Is Email Relay?
I send a few emails today and got a phonecall that people did not get my email. So I went into WHM and viewed "Top Email Relayers" There I saw my emails.

I am using WHM 11.11.0 cPanel 11.15.0

So what are Email Relayers?

How can I get my mails out of there so they can be send?

Relay Via Sendmail
I have found a bunch of articles to setup Sendmail as a mail relay, but none have been successful for me or the articles are very outdated. Anyone have a 'stupid-proof' set of current instructions on how setup Sendmail Pop before SMTP? This is a CentOS 4.5 Box with Sendmail 8.14.2/8.13.1 and Dovecot. Any successful guidance would be appreciated!

Email Relay
Occasionally when sending an email to an international address, I receive a rejected notice:

550 5.7.1 Relaying denied. IP name forged (PTR and A records mismatch) for (serverIP)

Nothing was changed anytime recently so I'm not sure why this would happen. How would I trace this type of error? Its a legitimate outgoing mail from my server to the intl recipient.

SPF has been set since day one and unchanged.

The mail server IP has rdns set to it and has been for a long time.

SMTP Relay Attack!
I have a cPanel server with CSF installed.

Today I face a problem having SMTP Relay attack

I Enabled SMTP Tweak inside WHM and it prevent the relays

But I am still seeing a huge attack inside my exim_mainlog through one of the domain hosting in the server.

I Delete the domain DNS zone, Change the domain name server, it still doesn't stop the attack. How do I go with this? Need help for those experienced in this... [] F=<> rejected RCPT <>: [] is currently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on in your email client.

Why Do I Get An Open Relay Warning
I ran my mail server through an SMTP diagnostic tool at:

And the one warning it gave was "WARNING! Your server could be an open relay."

This was for an out-of-the-box cpanel/exim configuration on a dedicated server. Can someone help me understand how this warning is detected/tested for, and what I can do to resolve it? My understanding was that cpanel will not set up an open relay by default?

SMTP Auth From A Relay: How Do I Get Around This
I'd like to describe an issue and see if this sounds familiar to anyone, or if there is a solution that I have not thought of yet.

CAUSE: My ISP (yeah, it's comcast) began blocking port 25 inbound so my personal mail server was no longer receiving mail.

RESOLUTION: I worked through a new DNS re-router to change the port that would now receive mail: from port 25 to port 587. It took me a while to get the routes pointed correctly, but I finally got the messages to route, get through my firewall, and hit the mail server.

NEW PROBLEM: After some IP and DNS routing issues, I finally got things to work, the email that gets sent finally arrives at my mail server. However, the mail server (Alt-N MDaemon) now requires AUTH from the incoming DNS re-direct.

BIG QUESTION: How do I configure MDaemon mail server (or any other mail server, for that matter) to accept the mail from the new re-route server? Mail now re-directed to the new port ALWAYS comes from that route ( Where in the configuration settings of MDaemon do I set it up? I've tried including the host name and the IP address into every WhiteList list I can find, added it to the trusted host name list and everything. I'm at a loss, since it's impossilbe to configure the re-route server to provide AUTH credentials to my mail server. MDaemon now replys to every mail reuqest with : 530

Authentication required (in reply to MAIL FROM command)

SMTP Relay Service
Anyone know of a good place to do SMTP relaying through?

We have legitimate clean email that we need to send for my site that gets filtered as junk mail for the major free email services (Hotmail, Yahoo mail, AOL mail, etc.). Unfortunatley it is legitimate email that needs to get through to the end user to register their account.

Right now we use the free 250 smtp relays per day that come with our free GoDaddy hosting account but we are quickly approaching the need to send more than 250 a day and GoDaddy charges a healthy amount for more than 250 a day.

Anyone know of a good economical SMTP relay service?

Exim Outbound Relay Per Domain
I have been searching for a solution to a problem that shouldn't exist but it does.


I have a customer on a UK server who sends emails to 500+ recipients on a monthly basis, and all but 3 emails are delivered....

The 3 that don't go, bounce after 3 days (as per the exim setup)

The 3 recipient domain's that reject don't seem to accept email from UK/European ip's and I have tried to send them emails from 4 different networks and still they bounce.

I have even tried to contact them via gmail, and still not heard back.

Proposed solution:

I want to be able to send email for that 1 domain to a Postfix Relay I have in the US.


How do I achieve this within Exim (a Cpanel Server).

I have found that so far its to do with the Router Configuration section within the Cpanel Exim setup, but I cannot seem to find an example of what and where i need to change the config...

Can anyone provide an example?

Exim Server - Being Used To Relay Spam?
Exim server - being used to relay spam?

Hoping someone can help here. I have a web server running a couple of sites, has been for a couple of years now. With one of the domains, I have an email forwarder setup through cpanel to forward mail sent to a specific address at that domain to my gmail account (it's a "contact us" type address). I don't think the email address is listed on the web anywhere.

Anyway, I am noticing a lot of spam emails being sent to that address, from that same address and they all appear to be relayed through my exim server legitimately. Obviously they aren't (as I am not sending them).

I am only familiar with sendmail, and am unsure about where to look for any possible hacks to my exim server. Can someone point me in the right direction? I want to stop these spam messages being sent, asap.

Internet Relay Chat - IRC Host
I'm in need of a simple IRC shell host.

We run an IRC bot service which interacts with our websites database, but currently the server does not support outgoing IRC connections.

I'm wondering if anyone can suggest a good, stable host.

It simply needs to have SSH, PHP, and support outgoing IRC connections of course

It will be connecting to a remote SQL server, so SQL is not needed. I'm unsure about how much bandwidth I need, I'm sure its little to none. 50MB would probably suffice on webspace.

RAM something comfortable, 300-600MB, nonoversold, no control panel, unmanaged, no "stupid question" tickets will be sent

Max cap around $10-30/m USD
