    Hello...

    I had this issue some minutes ago, i was trying to send a large email list using outlook, the email client didn't show any errors and delivered everything ok.. but mails never go out of the box... so I decided to search the logs and found this:


    Code:
    2007-08-15 14:07:41 H=xx.xx.xx.xx.dynamicip.rima-tde.net (info@mywebsite.com) [xx.xx.xx.xx] F=<info@mywebsite.com> rejected RCPT <micheltoria@libero.it>: xx.xx.xx.xx.dynamicip.rima-tde.net (info@mywebsite.com) [xx.xx.xx.xx] is currently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on in your email client.
    2007-08-15 14:07:42 unexpected disconnection while reading SMTP command from xx.xx.xx.xx.dynamicip.rima-tde.net (info@mywebsite.com) [xx.xx.xx.xx]
    

    Authentication required was active at the email account configuration, everything was well configured.. it was a server wide error.

    Searching over the net i found this solution: ran /scripts/mailperm and after that I added "127.0.0.1" to /etc/relayhosts list, restarted Exim and the problem was resolved, all mails were delivered OK.

    My question is, what is the function of /etc/relayhosts, /scripts/mailperm (fixing mailbox permissions?) and /etc/localdomains ? Is it OK to have 127.0.0.1 in /etc/relayhosts list?

    Thanks.
