    hi,
    i think there is something wrong with exim. I see soo many connection rtying to SMTP though my server. Most coming from china, poland, russian even if i have no cutsomers from that country. SMTP tweak is enable but they satill try to connect via STMP to send mails.
    Now i hav block most of there IP addesses with APF.
    It seems my server (or mayn server IP) is on some hacker network that has a list open relay SMTP...
    So what's wrong with exim or even my server??

    Go on, have a guess
    If you have a standard exim configuration then you won't have an open SMTP relay, so there's nothing to fix. If you've messed around with the exim configuration, then the following will set it back to the default configuration:

    /scripts/reseteximtodefaults

    If you're seeing email being sent out from your server that is spam, then you likely have compromised web scripts within the client accounts.

    If you're seeing lots of spam email coming into your server then you need to look at an anti-spam solution.
