    Today Exim on our server stopped working, and failed to restart. Checking the error logs, it seems the conf file is no longer /etc/exim.conf (if it ever was), but is now /usr/local/etc/exim/configure

    There were errors on startup pointing to line 11, which was

    acl_smtp_rcpt = check_recipient
    acl_smtp_data = check message

    I commented out these lines to see if exim would restart, but following this were lines such as:

    domainlist local_domains = lsearch;/etc/localdomains

    etc.

    But Exim recognises none of these! :confused: Any ideas? We're getting NO email now... :(

    Ok, I updated system software, and Exim was upgraded fully. Seems it was only partially so before. Now running fine :)

    That doesn't tell me much. Would you happen to know the specific version numbers?

    Nice to see it happened to someone else (if you get my drift;)). If you did sysup, like I did, then everything should be back to normal :)

    What does /scripts/sysup do exactly & will it work for Linux (since you all have FreeBSD)? Thanks.
