    I am having a serious problem with the Exim mail server.

    Exim statistics from 2006-03-29 04:02:11 to 2006-03-29 17:11:59

    Grand total summary
    -------------------
    At least one address
    TOTAL Volume Messages Hosts Delayed Failed
    Received 8698KB 2407 652 83 3.4% 68 2.8%
    Delivered 8639KB 2403 104

    How could my server of sent from 104 hosts, shouldnt it only be sending from 1 host... my server.. is this a relay issue.

    If a user specifies your server as their SMTP server in their mail client, they will be sending mail out through your server to elsewhere.

    As far as I can tell, Exim sees this as a connection from an external host, which is indeed correct.

    All the stats are saying is that 104 unique hosts (IP addresses) connected to your SMTP server to send mail. Nothing unusual about that.

    As far as I understand it says : Received from and Delivered To
    So it should be read as Delivered to 104 hosts and not Delivered from 104 hosts.

    I would appreciate a correction if I am wrong.
