    I setup long time ago postmaster and abuse server wide to exim. But today when I check dns report it says that domain accepts postmaster but i doesnt accept abuse.

    My /etc/myaliases file has

    postmaster: root
    abuse: root

    and under directors configuration in exim I have

    mysystem_aliases:
    driver = redirect
    allow_defer
    allow_fail
    data = ${lookup{$local_part}lsearch{/etc/myaliases}}
    file_transport = address_file
    pipe_transport = address_pipe
    retry_use_local_part

    I dont know what is wrong..

    Go on, have a guess
    Try sending an email to each one from an off-server account and see if both get through. If they do, then dnsstuff.com is wrong. If they don't both get through, check the exim_mainlog.

    For some reason, dnsreport does all its email checks by sending out just one mail with multiple recipients set. If you have anything in your exim.conf that rejects bounces to more than one recipient, the tests will fail.

    I have this at acl:

    deny message = only one message for null sender
    senders = :
    condition = ${if>{$rcpt_count}{1}{1}}

    I removed it and no more error message at dns report.

    By this way is this rule highly necessary as acl ? or hoy do i increment de value?

    You could keep it in and add

    !local_parts = abuse : postmaster

    to it so that those two recipients don't get rejected.
