    Hello,

    Am I right in thinking this will force users to send mail through an account i.e. not through the nobody user?

    Also, if I enable this, will everyone's php mail functions collapse?

    What effect can I expect this to have on the existing accounts? Is it recommneded?

    Thanks in advance,
    Adam.

    Go on, have a guess
    Not quite. The tweak basically stops local users or scripts from connecting to port 25 locally on the server to send out email. Scripts have to invoke exim (or /usr/sbin/sendmail if you like) to actually send emails. Users I think are OK as they authenticate when they send through the server, but you may need to test to make sure.

    I ran into this situation with my new host, he has this enabled I guess, and then using Client Exec I cannot send e-mail through the Interface using SMTP. I now have it configured to go through SendMail, which is odd, as I am not use to my hosts having me send mail through sendmail rather than through SMTP.
