    Hello,

    I would like to configure exim to reject mail coming from known spammers; like the ones that appear in lists found at spamhaus.org (other lists would be good too).

    Do you know of any tutorial on how to do this.

    I know that I have to edit the exim configuration file: one of the 3 consecutive textboxes that start with 'begin acl'

    Your help is appreciated.

    You may add this under begin acl in /etc/exim.conf

    # RBLS CHECKING ACL
    deny message = Message rejected - $sender_fullhost is in an RBL, see $dnslist_text
    !hosts = +relay_hosts
    !authenticated = *
    dnslists = bl.spamcop.net : sbl-xbl.spamhaus.org
    #RBL Bypass Local Domain List
    !domains = +rbl_bypass


    That will setup spamcop and spamhaus databases for RBL checking. :)

    Bye!
