    Hi,

    Our mail server gave some error to about our dealer mail server "rejected connection in "connect" ACL: Host is banned" I can't find ACL list on server to remove hostname

    greylist_trusted_netblocks: IP/24 # domain name
    trustedmailhosts:domain_name
    trusted_mail_users:e-mail adress
    trusted_mail_users:e-mail adress


    But still our mail server reject all mail sending from this hostname.

    2018-09-05 15:34:02 H=mail.example.com.tr [IP]:51806 rejected connection in "connect" ACL: Host is banned
    2018-09-05 15:34:02 SMTP connection from mail.example.com.tr [IP]:51806 closed by DROP in ACL


    How and where can I remove this hostname from ACL list.

    Thanx

    Hi @GRLKFGL

    The only point where this comes up in the exim.conf is as follows:

    Code:
     grep -5 -r  "Host is banned" /etc/
    /etc/exim.conf-# BEGIN INSERT spammerlist
    /etc/exim.conf-
    /etc/exim.conf-
    /etc/exim.conf-drop
    /etc/exim.conf-    message = Your host is not allowed to connect to this server.
    /etc/exim.conf:    log_message = Host is banned
    /etc/exim.conf-    hosts = +spammeripblocks
    /etc/exim.conf-
    /etc/exim.conf-
    /etc/exim.conf-# END INSERT spammerlist
    /etc/exim.conf-
    We can see it's looking at spammeripblocks for this which can be found here:
    Code:
    ls -lah /etc/ |grep spammeripblocks
    -rw-r-----  1 root  mail     0 Jul  6 18:35 spammeripblocks

    You'd need to remove the host from this file.


    Thanks!
