Even though email flag are correctly set in conf.maldet and they have not been changed lately, since some days, Maldet is not sending alert mail anymore
email_alert="1"
email_addr="email-address"

By the way I also noticed that
maldet -co email_addr="email-address"

is not changing anything in conf.maldet

(sending report by email is working, es. maldet --report SCANID email-address
is working correctly)


Anyone knows about alert mail issue ?

Hello,

You could search /var/log/exim_mainlog to see if the message is filtered before reaching the intended inbox. Here's an example of searching /var/log/exim_mainlog via the command line:

Code:
exigrep [email protected] /var/log/exim_mainlog
Keep in mind Maldet is a third-party application.

Thank you.

Hallo, thanks for answering
Infact there was no filtering change in exim
Suddenly, some days ago, alert mail started to be correctly delivered again
I suppose everything was because of a maldect updating not working properly

I think you are right about this. I had noticed that two particular updates within the past month or so ended up causing me to no longer receive maldet reports. The last update seems to have fixed it.
