Exim Configuration Editor error

Why does the Exim Configuration Editor say that there is an error while writing exim.conf while I can easily add the directives manually in /etc/ecim.conf without any error.

I'm trying to add the following in exim.conf through WHM without any success. :(

deny message = $sender_host_address is listed \
at $dnslist_domain
dnslists = spamhaus.relays.osirusoft.com : \
proxy.relays.osirusoft.com : \
socks.relays.osirusoft.com : \
spamsites.relays.osirusoft.com : \

list.dsbl.org : \
flowgoaway.com : \
dialups.visi.com : \
blackholes.easynet.nl : \
opm.blitzed.org
deny local_parts = ^.*[@%!/|]
message = I've never seen @, %, !, /, or | in an e-mail. Neither should you.

Have you gotten the WHM edits to work? It's current state doesn't seem to work properly for the dnslists

The exim config editor does not yet support \ at the end of the line. Just put it all on one line and it will work.

WHM works if you used your brain and asked why it didn't :)

Hi Nick,

Everything on one line? How?
I tried everything but the error remains.

2003-07-24 23:35:24 Exim configuration error in line 232:
missing ACL name

Anyways, I want to get the following as default so when something updates, this stays. how?

#!!# ACL that is used after the RCPT command

Anything on this yet? Just curious. Not impatient. :)

I'd like to be able to use the WHM editor, but I still think it's in it's 'beta' stage.

I think each section should allow an 'overwrite' instead of adding. That way we can control order if we like, and it would solve the issue of trying the deny lists.

Currently, it appears that we can't really add our deny lists properly.

If you want to use the deny lists then chattr +i the exim.conf

upcp won't replace it but /scripts/exim4 will replace it.

put that doesn't really 'solve' the issue.

I have no problem manually editing it as I have all along. It's just that the WHM editor implies that we would no longer have to manually edit after each update.

I'm not in a tremendous rush. I know there is plenty of other more important stuff. And I really appreciate how cpanel was so quick to recognize the MailScanner edits. :)

great howto mm

What about a text box under:
require verify = sender

to add the deny/warn list ?

As mmkassem points out, unless there the rbl check is put just after

require verify = sender

it won't work. There needs to be a box for inserting the rbls there otherwise the only option is edit the exim.conf manually and then chattr +i the file.

Not yet. When I suggested it to Nick he told me there will be a new customizable system soon.

Its gud to hear about that.

Just today i realised that upcp did a chattr -i on my exim.conf and my entire exim configuration was spoilt. It seems there were some exim changes made in the recent builds.

I just rebuild the entire thing back up.

Nick is there a way we can keep custom exim configuration ??
