    /etc/relayhosts
    What should be in this file?
    I see Ip's in there that are not part of my network, or part of my co-lo's network...
    I don't see many of the IP's that I use on my servers either.

    thanks for any help...

    Sometimes in my exim/mainlog is see.

    Cant open /etc/relayhosts then the error goes away. /etc/relayhosts is chmod 644 so im not sure why we see this error at times. Maybe you should look to see if this is happening in your exim_mainlog as well.

    Go on, have a guess
    That file holds the IP addresses found by the antirelayd daemon which collects them from /var/log/maillog and puts them into that file to allow relaying from those IP addresses through the server - i.e. POP before SMTP.
