    We're working on battling spam, and after adding some new ACL rules that seem to help, exim reports this during a restart:

    Warning, you are running an old version of exim that cannot fight spam as well as newer versions. You should update to exim 4.68 or later as soon as possible.

    When I run /scripts/eximup, it reports that I'm up to date.

    If I force the update, will it install the latest version, or do I need to go to an Edge config (Currently in RELEASE tree)?


    Also - will an update preserve the customizations I've made to exim.conf?

    Cheers, Michael

    I may be wrong, but I think 4.68 has propagated all the way to RELEASE by now. Are you by chance still on mbox?

    I think so - haven't converted to maildir yet.

    In that case, 4.63 is the latest version you can use. You will need to convert to maildir to use 4.68.

    Thanks - I'll kick off the maildir conversion tonight. Should I then expect to get the new exim version on my next cpupdate?

    Yes, Exim 4.68 has propagated all the way to STABLE already for those on maildir.
