SMART_HOST and error reports



  • 1. Move queue
    Hi, My lowest MX mail server is on the verge of taking a dirt nap, so I have a few questions I really need help getting answered. I'm putting each in its own post to keep from getting things confused. Right now on my backup MX server there are over 23K emails waiting to be processed. I was wondering if its possible to just tar the /var/spool/mqueue directory up and drop it on the lowest MX for processing. By doing this I don't have to bring the sendmail server up for the rest of the world to see. Thanks, Tuc

    for some configuration issues pls contact via email thx in advance cheers
  • 3. Blocking subjects
    We are using the following rules to block certain subject lines in using a flat file for the words, and so far is working OK. My question is, how can I move them to the file instead so that if the m4 macro gets invoked we don't loose them? #Rule to block subjects F{SubBlockPat} /etc/mail/BAD-SUBJECTS HSubject: $>Check_Subject D{SubBlockMsg} Error SCheck_Subject R$* $={SubBlockPat} $* $#error $: 553 ${SubBlockMsg} Regards, Paul Aviles

Being a provider that has clients that may or may not be able to receive emails from senders because the senders administrator has something futzed up on their Windows Small Business Server 2003 / Exchange 2003 setup I am required (in such as I want my clients to stay with my company) to allow these types of emails through to keep my customers happy. I'm sure that I'm not alone on this one. Now if you are in a corporate / government environment where you have the political ability to do such, then by all means please do. Please educate the (l)users out there. However for the rest of us competing to gain new / retain existing clients we do not always have this luxury. > It's up to us to enforce the rules, not adjust our setups to suite the > incompetants, if we keep ammending to let brokens in, they will never > learn. Agreed. It is indeed up to the internet community to encourage others to make sure that they are on top of their game. However we do no always have the ability to do such. Grant. . . .

SMART_HOST and error reports

Postby » Thu, 02 Feb 2006 18:30:58 GMT

I am currently routing outgoing emails via ISP's smtp host, and it
works fine, except for emails with errors. Whenever a mail transaction
fails, it is reported back to the system account on my local smtp
server, and not to the original sender of the email. Which means I will
have to check every single failed email and notice the original sender,
instead of the local smtp server sends the error report back to the
original sender. Can this be arranged?

That sounds genuinely broken - are you sure you're not just seeing the
effect of having the PostmasterCopy option set? Please provide .mc file
and log entries (*all* *relevant* log entries - the error messages will
have a different queue ID, but there will be "DSN" log lines connecting
them to the original one).
