    hi people,

    I can't send nor receive email through my server.Yesterday it was still working fine but today i noticed it isn't.I mean no errors at all but no emails either

    Code:
    usr/sbin/exim -bt me@mydomain.com
    
    me@mydomain.com cannot be resolved at this time: 
    All deliveries are handled by MailScanner 
    
    I don't even get a bounced back error message.What the heck is going on here ?? i'm getting nuts :mad:

    Code:
     /usr/sbin/exim -qff
    
    2006-10-21 10:01:05 1GbCyi-0001yi-J6 == mail_adress_here R=defer_router defer (-1): All deliveries are handled by MailScanner
    
    
    the above is shown in my /var/log/exim_mainlog

    look what i found

    if i run this command

    it show me

    Now, it's rather difficult to help identify exactly where the problem might without actually looking into your server.

    Did you check that /etc/exim_outgoing.conf file exist?
    Did you check that MailScanner is running?
    Did you restart MailScanner?

    If they don't work, monitor Exim log files, and then send an email:
    tail -f /var/log/exim_mainlog
    tail -f /var/log/maillog

    Do you see MailScanner start processing shortly after an email arrives, according to both logs?

    Go on, have a guess
    The error means that your exim/MailScanner setup was broken. Typically this can happen if you install the clamavconnector. Either way, it's usually easily fixed.
