We just recently got a new server with MailScanner installed. We are having trouble sending mail from the server to an offsite e-mail address. For example when I type:

echo "Test Message" | mail -s "Test Message" [email protected]
The exim_mainlog will report:

2004-07-16 15:04:33 1BlY0E-0000Ny-Qm == [email protected] R=defer_router defer (-1): All deliveries are handled by MailScanner
How can I get the mail to be delivered to the offsite e-mail address? Is there something wrong with the MailScanner configuration? I've never used MailScanner before so I am not familiar with its configuration.

Thanks

Go on, have a guess
Is MailScanner actually running?
Do you have the following line at the top of /etc/exim.conf and /etc/exim_outgoing.conf?

queue_only_override = false

If not, MailScanner has not been installed correctly.
Do you actually have an /etc/exim_outgoing.conf?

It's difficult to help identify exactly where the problem might without actually looking, but I would suspect it's the exim directive I mentioned.
