    I've a problem on Exim. I can't receive e-mail from several servers becouse the connection seem goes timeout.

    Here the example of exim logs related to a server (88.149.157.110) that I'm sure it's ok (It send a newsletter that I receive from 1999 until I've changed server in november 2006).

    2006-12-18 18:25:57 SMTP connection from [88.149.157.110]:50713 I=[xx.xx.xx.xx]:25 lost
    2006-12-18 18:26:15 ident connection to 88.149.157.110 timed out
    2006-12-18 18:27:13 SMTP connection from [88.149.157.110]:49702 I=[xx.xx.xx.xx]:25 (TCP/IP connection count = 9)
    2006-12-18 18:27:15 ident connection to 88.149.157.110 timed out
    2006-12-18 18:27:39 SMTP connection from [88.149.157.110]:49700 I=[xx.xx.xx.xx]:25 lost
    2006-12-18 18:28:23 SMTP connection from [88.149.157.110]:49702 I=[xx.xx.xx.xx]:25 lost

    The problem isn't limited to this sender but about 7-8% of sender servers have the same problems.
    It's a big problem that I don't know how solve. Any ideas?

    Are you blocking outgoing connections to port 113 (ident)?

    This thread was written 3 years ago!

    If you are having some sort of mail issue (presumably from your bumping this very old thread), I would suggest that you start a new thread and give us a description of your problem and the users here will try to help you but just bumping a 3 year old thread is not going to do you much good especially when your problem may be something entirely and completely different!
