    Earlier I wrote I know my problem is probably local but here goes. I was having problems and kept getting
    Permanent error with Rcpt To: 550-Verification failed for so I went to exim config editor and turn receipt verification off.

    Nothing goes through. I go to dnsreports.com and test things out and I get
    [Successful connect: Got a good response [250 Accepted]]

    Still nothing. What could I be doing wrong? Thanks for the help

    I really am perplexed I think I am set up correctly.

    That did it. I have been trying things on and off for weeks. I really appreciate the help. I was doing it to a test account so I could launch on a real account. This gives me some confidence. One more question. Should I turn on the verification mode? My whole reason for trying Cpanel is as a spam tool. Thanks again!!!!!

    get to the file /etc/exim.conf

    look for the following lines:
    ====================================
    #sender verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to lists


    require verify = sender
    accept domains = +local_domains
    endpass


    #recipient verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to the local machine
    #this was done at multiple users requests


    message = "The recipient cannot be verified. Please all recipients of this message to verify they are valid."
    verify = recipient


    accept domains = +relay_domains
    accept hosts = +relay_hosts
    accept condition = ${perl{checkrelayhost}{$sender_host_address}}


    accept hosts = +auth_relay_hosts
    endpass
    message = $sender_fullhost 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.
    authenticated = *

    deny message = $sender_fullhost 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.

    ================================================
    This is from a working server. It should be the same there. If so.. do not alter anything.

    I appreciate that and I will try it. My question is do I want this installed. It is my understanding this will halt the spam. Is this a good tool?

    If you have time. I think I could use a little more help.Things don't look exactly like yours. My question is how do I write this in?

    This is what you sent
    get to the file /etc/exim.conf

    look for the following lines:
    ====================================
    #sender verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to lists


    require verify = sender
    accept domains = +local_domains
    endpass


    #recipient verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to the local machine
    #this was done at multiple users requests


    message = "The recipient cannot be verified. Please all recipients of this message to verify they are valid."
    verify = recipient


    accept domains = +relay_domains
    accept hosts = +relay_hosts
    accept condition = ${perl{checkrelayhost}{$sender_host_address}}


    accept hosts = +auth_relay_hosts
    endpass
    message = $sender_fullhost 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.
    authenticated = *

    have not logged into the pop/imap server in the \

    ================================================

    THIS IS MINE

    {yes}{no}}

    accept condition = \
    ${if and {{match{$local_part}{(.*)-bounces\+.*}} \
    {exists {/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/${lc:$1}_${lc:$domain}/config.pck}}} \
    {yes}{no}}

    #if it gets here it isn't mailman
    $
    #sender verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to lists
    $
    accept domains = +local_domains
    endpass
    $
    #recipient verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to the local machine
    #this was done at multiple users requests
    $
    message = "The recipient cannot be verified. Please all recipients of this message to verify they are valid."
    verify = recipient
    $
    accept domains = +relay_domains

    warn message = ${perl{popbeforesmtpwarn}{$sender_host_name}}
    hosts = +relay_hosts
    accept hosts = +relay_hosts

    warn message = ${perl{popbeforesmtpwarn}{$sender_host_address}}

    the beginning of the file is the same. But you need to get to the part that starts as :

    #sender verifications are required for all messages that are not sent to lists

    and then do the check. i have given a clip from the file that relates to verification.

    You can use the 'vi' editor or the pico to make the changes. But I suggest that you better ask your support team to make the changes.

    I will do that. I turn the verification back on in exim configuration and I get
    Reason: Fatal error sending message: Permanent error with Rcpt To: 550-Verification failed for name@domain.com

    I will talk to my support team, thanks for all the help at least I can see it working

    I really appreciate the help. I realize I am new to all this and I wish I understood a little more. Your help was much needed and I intend on using you for more resources. I really do appreciate the help.

    See I am not familiar with anything but Cpanel and very little of that. One question I did have was this. I updated my config of my Cpanel server. Wouldn't that have updated the exim? If not is there some diagnostic I should run to check all of this. I just set things up 3-4 months ago I don't want to fall behind already!:)

    Also to let you know I am forwarding some mail to that account I set up. It is correctly marking things as spam. I can't wait to try out the message verification. I would think that stops spam dead!

    1. what do you mean by "my config of my Cpanel server". Which file did you update ?

    let me know and i will sure help :)

    would you like me to post or email some files or config files so you can see exactly what you are dealing with? I am happy with the way things are going but I would like to see how the email verification works. I would love to slow down the spam.

    Thanks
