    My personal email address on one of my servers, has today, started receiving this message which I don't understand.

    Remote-MTA: DNS; mail.mydomain.com
    Diagnostic-Code: SMTP; 550 Administrative prohibition

    How do I get off this administrative prohibition please.

    You should begin by checking for any more specific errors in /var/log/exim_rejectlog

    If this is not the case, check the forward under /etc/valiases/$domainname for any typo's.
    Make sure the mail inboxes exist under /home/$user/mail/$domainname/$mailuser/inbox

    Thanks

    There was no joy in exim_rejectlog. However, there was an error in the forwarding info in /valiases/$domain

    Thanks so much for your help!!!
