Hi,

To disable IPv6 for exim, please go through following steps,

Change following line in exim.conf

Search for :hostlist loopback = <; 127.0.0.0/8 ; 0.0.0.0 ; ::1 ; 0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:ffff:7f00:0000/8

and replace it with : hostlist loopback = <; 127.0.0.0/8 ; 0.0.0.0

Restart Exim.

try it.

thank you for fast replys.

If i do that, then i have problems to send emails:
unable to bind outgoing SMTP call to [ADDITIONAL IP]: Cannot assign requested addressfailed: Cannot assign requested address

(I have a seperate IP for exim)

if i remove the line disable_ipv6 = true,
it works... but then again with ipv6

This error can happen if the IP address is not bound to the server. Try restarting the "ipaliases" service via:

Code:
service ipaliases restart
Thank you.
