    It seems i will not be the only one affected by this, but every cpanel host should be concerned. we fixed this back in july, but for some odd reason, it came back


    Heres from my client:



    Yes, this is the exact same problem I had with ticket 112: the 220 headers exceed the RFC861-specified maximum of 512 characters. This is causing me grief with ISPs who strictly adhere to this standard. Is there a way to correct this as you did before? Here is the 220 header message:

    220-wolf.thehideout.net ESMTP Exim 3.33 #1 Wed, 17 Oct 2001 18:06:45 -0700
    220-We do not authorize the use of this system to transport unsolicited,
    220-and/or bulk e-mail.
    220-
    220-This computer system is for authorized users only. Individuals using this
    220-system without authority or in excess of their authority are subject to
    220-having all their activities on this system monitored and recorded or
    220-examined by any authorized person, including law enforcement, as system
    220-personnel deem appropriate. In the course of monitoring individuals
    220-improperly using the system or in the course of system maintenance, the
    220-activities of authorized users may also be monitored and recorded. Any
    220-material so recorded may be disclosed as appropriate. Anyone using this
    220 system consents to these terms.


    This message is exactly the same as I reported to you on July 20. You corrected it and everything was fine until early last month when other Wolf-related problems started up. I\'m not sure if they are connected.

    I would be willing to move back to the Pixie server (along with my reseller accounts) if it a a lighter load and coule be more reliable with email, since we know that the 220 header problem was what was originally causing me grief on Pixie.


    Thanks for your help
