    Any email I send out, even to myself, immediately comes back with this error in the exim log:

    could not complete sender verify

    I don't know of anything that has recently changed with exim.

    For temporary, I totally disabled sender verification in exim so I could at least have email working...

    What does sender verification rely on? What should I look for to fix it?

    Thanks.

    It tests to make sure the sender's address is valid. But this is a common issue and a lot of people disable that because it is too strict and winds up losing legit email.

    I found the problem. It uses mailman for some reason, and if you chmod 000 mailman, it breaks exim sender verification.
