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 [email protected]

[email protected] 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

exigrep [email protected] /var/log/exim_mainlog

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.

Yeah i did knew that.I always use you free MS installer.Your website mentions clamavconnector will break MS.Maybe you are surprised but i do read all documention provided ;) anyway i did reset exim to it's default configuration ad reinstalled MS working fine
