    We have a few clients that say they get errors when they send e-mails but when they try sending the EXACT SAME e-mail 10 minutes later it goes through with no problem. This only happens occasionally & on different e-mail accounts, different computers & even different ISPs! Most of the time all e-mail works fine. Any thoughts?

    Have you asked your client(s) to disable the SMTP authentication option in their email client(s)?

    Possibly. Just make a copy of the antivirus file before you execute /scripts/exim4. Once that's complete, replace the antivirus file.

    I have found only problems when using that setting. I advise all Clients they do not need to use it and should have it un-checked in their eMail program.
