    We receive occasional emails with invalid Reply-To headers. The exim log shows:

    Since the company sending these is so large that there is no realistic chance of getting to someone who can change things their end, I wondered if there is a way to allow emails with invalid Reply-To headers through - ideally in the WHM editor?

    Many thanks

    Go on, have a guess
    I doubt it as they're (or rather the client sending the email) breaking the SMTP RFC's.

    Thanks, I know that but am up against a brick wall getting anything changed their end. Our previous server used sendmail, which let these mails through.

    I read about a 'headers_checks_fail = false' entry in exim.conf that would seem to do what I want - but wondered if I could put it in the WHM Advanced Exim Editor instead - so it doesn't get overwritten (if this is indeed what I want)? If so, where do I put it?

    Best wishes, Ed

    I tried putting headers_checks_fail = false in several of the boxes of the Advanced Exim Editor, but get:

    'Configuration file has an invalid syntax. Please try again.'

    Can anyone point me at a place for Exim help so I can work out where, if anywhere, this needs to be put?

    Or would clearing the 'Verify the existence of email senders.' checkbox on the Simple Editor possibly do what I want?

    Any help much appreciated!

    Un-setting 'Verify the existence of email senders' in the Exim Configuration Editor allowed these emails through for me. I also pestered Amadeus (and still am, 6 months later!!) who have yet, as far as I am aware, to consider it serious enough to come up with a solution. Actually, I don't think they have a clue what I am talking about.

    Good luck, Ed:confused:
