An error was detected while processing a file of BSMTP input.
The error message was:

421 Lost incoming connection

The SMTP transaction started in line 0.
The error was detected in line 3.
0 previous messages were successfully processed.
The rest of the batch was abandoned.
421 Lost incoming connection
Transaction started in line 0
Error detected in line 3

I been getting a lot of bounce complains with this error. I had tried reinstalling Exim 4 twice, and a few other things.

Also I started seeing a lot of this error in Exim Main log

I had also been getting some unroutable complains to, This started about 2-3 days ago.

Anyone got the same problems, or know how to rectify it?
