    Greetings,

    How can i block a spammer from AOL within the exim.conf.

    everytime i attempt to modify this .conf file in exin4 it breaks.

    Any help would be great.

    Cheers,
    l4s

    Dear L4S,

    This can be done using ORDB in exim.conf. Try to add the following lines to /etc/exim/exim.conf

    # reject messages whose sending host is in ORDB
    rbl_domains = relays.ordb.org/reject
    # check all hosts other than those on internal network
    rbl_hosts = !192.168.0.0/24:0.0.0.0/0
    # but allow mail to postmaster@my.dom.ain even from rejected host
    recipients_reject_except = postmaster@my.dom.ain
    # change some logging actions (collect more data)
    rbl_log_headers = true # log headers of accepted ORDBed messages
    rbl_log_rcpt_count = true # log recipient info of accepted ORDBed messages
    # The action for domains without either of these is controlled by
    # rbl_reject_recipients, which implies `/reject\' when set.
    rbl_reject_recipients = true
    rbl_warn_header = false

    For more information regarding ORDB,refer the url:

    Regards,

    ORDB only blocks servers that have open relays. If he want's to block spammers he should use a list like spamcop.net or spamhaus.org. It will be difficult to block an AOL sender, when they do manage to land on one of the blacklists they are removed pretty quickly.
