    hi all,
    since a few weeks i have high load coming from exim mailserver. Doing "netstat"
    i see that there are tons of connecting to SMTP (as: server.myserver.com:smtp)

    Welcome to the internet. If you firewall off these connections you won't be able to receive mail, thus making Exim pretty useless.
