How To Make Exim Send Out Only Emails From Localdomains
May 16, 2009
I've looked through my exim logs a number of times and I see emails being sent out with "from:" fields with email addresses of other domains. Usually they are spam related and fraudulent.
How can exim be setup to only send out emails that have localdomains in their from fields?
E.g. if I have account bob.com on my server then the owner of bob.com can only send out emails "firstname.lastname@example.org" no matter what else he tries to do that's all exim will send out.
How can you get exim to do this? I have been using filtering to block commonly spammed domains like aol.com hotmail.com etc - any emails sent out with these in their from fields are filtered and blocked - but rather building up a larger and larger filter of commonly abused domains - why not just block everything except domains on your server.
im tryying to setup a forum, but i cannot use email verification, every time i try to send a email it gets bounced back with these details, no matter who i try to send to,hoster has changed to several ips wiht same prob?

You are receiving this email because your email address was entered as an email test at Pc -Mod.
The first step of this email test script has been completed. However, a formatting test is still necessary:
A paragraph break. A single line break.
Another paragraph break. Another single line break. Another single line break.
If the above lines look correct, you are finished. The email features on your server are setup correctly.
If this email is run together on one line, there is possibly a configuration error with your mail server. Please ensure it is configured correctly.

Every month or two, we like to send our members a newsletter-type email which just informs them about what's happening over in our website and community. We have over 350,000 accounts registered, so there's quite a few emails to be sent each time.
I'm currently using cPanel with Exim and SwiftMailer to send the members an email through PHP. The way I do it currently is import all the email addresses to a separate table then email 500-1000 at a time. This is controlled by a Cron job.
I'm finding Exim to be extremely slow and the queue has built up to 190,000 as I type this (the email process started last week).
My question is this. What's the best software, whether it be a program or a script of some form, to send an email to such amount of users? Or if anyone knows any way to 'tweak' Exim to handle such mass-emails.
to send 3.6 million emails over a week period of time. it is for a client that wants to send an email about their new account policies. these users are clients from different domains. how can this be done.
They have an exchange server onsite. should they use that server or do you recommend going through a service? if so whom do you recommend that is good?
Do you recommend going with a dedciated server for email? what server specs? the email will not have an attachment just a few lines and a link to their own site. with whatever solution you recommend? please give me price ranges?
Dell and such enterprise companies send emails all the time with that many emails and more to external clients... how do they do it.
I just do not want to get black listed and want to make sure all or most of they clients get it.
I tried to send an email to Hotmail.com and I get error messages. However, I can send an email to another email address that forwards to hotmail and it arrives correctly.
When sending via SquirrelMail I get:

I have correct TXT dns entries. Doesn't matter what email I sent to hotmail, they all get rejected. They don't even appear in the junk box
I've just came across an issue with mailing list on a Linux server. Problem is that when a message is broadcasted from a mailing list having around 1500 subscribers, most of them having @yahoo.com and @hotmail.com addresses, message to most of the recepients fails with following error...
Code: 2009-07-09 12:26:25 1MOn2u-0001CB-QJ SMTP error from remote mail server after RCPT TO:<email@example.com>: host c.mx.mail.yahoo.com [18.104.22.168]: 452 Too many recipients It is becuase exim tries to send a message to as many recepients as it could to users on same domain
On a Windows server, i was running Merak mail server and there was an option to send separate message to all mailing list subscribers, but i don't know where it could be located in exim config, or even if it has!
Not far ago somebody hacked our customer account through the vulnerability in phpBB Album module and uploaded some scripts. Then it started to send nigerian spam using exim and apache. These scripts were found and deleted and the Album module was fully deleted too. But when I look at the processes now I see that exim and httpd still start very often so the system resources are probably overused by them ......
A client of mine has an Exchange server in the company, for sending mails he like to setup smarthost in the Exchange server to relay the outgoing mails from a third party mail relaying service provider.
My VPS is working perfectly for over one year. However the mail server of my VPS is always not working about 3 - 4 times a week since three weeks ago. I can login the webmail accounts, just cannot receive emails and send emails.
Started after last update 12.0.18 Update #44 (on CloudLinux): I can send mail wia created mailboxes, but sites can not send mail, contact forms say "Failed to send your message." maillog file also do not indicate sending any messages from domains. Wordpress restore password claims:
"The e-mail could not be sent. Possible reason: your host may have disabled the mail() function." php.ini is default: safe_mode = Off disable_functions = is empty
The issue about not sending mail from domains was - old versions of LVE anf CageFS are incompatible with latest plesk update, updating them caused all sites in Cagefs to throw error 500 with log string: "SecureLVE jail error Invalid regexps: no match for path to base home directory". It was fixed by changing cagefs.base.home.dirs regexp to the real sites folder location. Enabling cagefs back removed one of the files it shouldn't:
"Removed file /var/cagefs/81/xxx/etc/php.d/soap.ini" So be carefull to place necesssary files back. For now everything works. Click to expand... Click for original message
I just moved from DirectAdmin to Parallels Plesk and already love the interface. Much better than DA in my opinion.
Let's get to the problem:
When I make a new email account I can login to this account on webmail.domain.com (roundcube) and receive and send emails. Now when I want to use this account on Apple Mail i'm not sure which ports I need to use.
For the incoming mail server I use: 143 For the outgoing mail server I use: 587
Now when I look at my mailbox it gives me a warning sign. The outgoing mail server gives a green dot, but the incoming mail server gives me a red dot.
- So sending mails works. - And receiving mails don't work.
I am using IMAP and have enabled the SSL box. I don't know if i need to check this, because i'm not running on an SSL certificate.
Are the ports that i'm using right? And should I enable the SSL checkbox?
I had made the backups of subscription and of whole plesk too and migrate it to other server. It seems all to be fine, but I cannot send or receive emails In Tools & Settings -> Server-Wide Mail Settings - > Mail Queue I see all mails stored there. The IPs was changed yesterday, and now I can see that WHOIS Infos was chanfed too, the domains are online.
On old server I had no problem with sending of emails (post), it is stil on, because I had not by all domains changed the DNS-Records yet.
