    At least once a week, exim seems to run into some kind of problem on my server.

    Users connecting via POP3 will get the following error when sending an email:



    Your message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

    Subject: whatever the subject is
    Sent: 5/1/2006 10:37 AM

    The following recipient(s) could not be reached:

    'user@domain.com' on 5/1/2006 10:37 AM
    503 valid RCPT command must precede DATA



    In order for me to correct the problem, I need to run /scripts/exim4 --force


    Does anyone else have this problem? or have any suggestions to keep this from happening each week?


    Server Info
    cPanel : Current
    Dual Xeon / 4GB Ram

    Go on, have a guess
    You need to check your exim mainlog when it happens for the specific reason that it's not allowing email to be relayed.

    Here is the error from the exim_mainlog at 10:47

    2006-05-01 10:47:17 H=pm9-ppp010.dialup.wzrd.com (d610) [24.75.6.108] F=<timb@incheckhost.com> rejected RCPT <timt@wzrd.com>: pm9-ppp010.dialup.wzrd.com (d610) [24.75.6.108] is currently not permitted to relay through this server. Perhaps you have not logged into the pop/imap server in the last 30 minutes or do not have SMTP Authentication turned on in your email client


    After I ran ./scripts/exim4 --force, the email above without any problems.

    Since it's happening weekly, it's more than likely antirelayd failing because /var/log/maillog isn't being rotated correctly. Try implementing the following and it may help, but first you'll need to restart syslog:

    service syslog restart

    Then do:

    Unfortunately, the errors started up again this morning.

    I ran upcp --force and it took care of the problem...


    I also switched from CURRENT to STABLE tree and ran upcp again...

    so far so good.... I guess I will know in the morning...

    hi tbtucholka, were you able to fix up the problem? I am facing this problem for more than a month now and it automatically starts working with me actually doing nothing. Please let me know what procedure you adapted to get this solved. An early reply would be appreciated.

    Hi!
    I am not sure his problem , but I have problem on maillog, I notice when people tell me my mail server got problem and I found /var/log/maillog isn't log anything, it just 0 in size, but maillog.1 is logging something, I do what u suggest :
    service syslog restart
    and maillog is OK now.
    What will cause this problem ?
    How should I do about it ? It's a new cpanel server I just got for like 2 weeks, everything seems fine except sometimes people call me say they can not receive/sent emails.

    Hi!
    My problem seems still there, today I check the /var/log/maillog , it is empty, and I use service syslog restart
    Do I have to do this everytime ? Is there a way to find out what's wrong of my server ?
