    Hello all,

    I'm looking to implement this Exim configuration that I found on another site.

    smtp_accept_max_per_host =
    ${lookup{$sender_host_address}lsearch{<file>}
    {$value}
    {
    ${lookup{${mask:$sender_host_address/24}}lsearch*{<file>}}
    }}

    - create a file called <file>

    - in the file, create the following lines:

    192.168.0.0/24: 10
    192.168.4.5: 15
    *: 5

    Is anyone else currently using a configuration similar to this and has any pointers for me?

    Thanks!

    This worked to you?

    I have a server with 255 IPs and every relay scan on my server is a DOS and exim starts to refuse connection.
