    I have a customer who has Microsoft Entourage on his mac and he can pop his box just fine from anywhere. But when he has a message sitting in the outbox and does a send receive from home (he's on comcast) he gets mail but it won't send the outgoing. I checked my acl's and smtp auth is before the zen.spamhaus.com rbl section, so if he auths first it should bypass the rbl part and send his mail. But its not. I have checked and his settings are setup for smtp auth and using the same user name and password that he's poping with. Any ideas here? Its kinda confusing.. I tried to go into the advanced exim cfg section and don't see anything in there about the rbl's so I am guessing that the new interface is generating some of it on the fly when its saved. Thanks in advance for any ideas.

    Is the customer connecting on port 25 or 26? Most ISPs block connections on port 25 out of spam/zombie concerns.

    Follow up on sending emails

    Well, after I got the customer on the phone when he was at the problem location. We found that they are now blocking outbound port 25, so I setup the other port to also run exim on and that fixed it. Seems comcast and bellsouth are ramping up the anti spam controls.. all I can say is its about time. Thanks for the hints.

    I'm just waiting for them to start blocking 26.
