    Hi ya,

    I have this really annoying problem with my Exim server.

    99% of my emails get delivered correctly, but sometimes I get a bounce back with the error: SMTP<< 450 4.7.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your reverse hostname

    All my reverse rDNS entries are correct and resolve to my hostname correctly. So I don't understand why this happens now and again.

    Any help anybody?

    Andy

    Kindly provide us the mail logs for the bounce back mail which you are receiving. You can check the mail logs from the below location:

    /var/log/exim_mainlog

    Make sure that you have setup PTR record for your server, since some mail service provider requires it to send/receive emails.
