    Default Questions about Exim4

    I have Zimbra installed on a fresh install of Debian Etch. I can send emails with no problem. The firewall is open for smtp traffic to my mail server. There is also nothing in my logs on my firewall as well saying it dropped any of the traffic. I get the following bounce message:

    bill@someip.net>:
    MyPublicIP does not like recipient.
    Remote host said: 550 Unrouteable address
    Giving up on MyPublicIP.


    My update-exim4.conf.conf looks like this:

    dc_eximconfig_configtype='smarthost'
    dc_other_hostnames='someip.net'
    dc_local_interfaces='10.0.0.31;127.0.0.1'
    dc_readhost='someip.net'
    dc_relay_domains='someip.net'
    dc_minimaldns='false'
    dc_relay_nets='someip.net'
    dc_smarthost='mail.MySmarthost.com'
    CFILEMODE='644'
    dc_use_split_config='false'
    dc_hide_mailname='true'
    dc_mailname_in_oh='true'
    dc_localdelivery='mail_spool'


    So, does anybody know what I am missing? I most likely just need a second set of eyes pointing to something simple.

    You've confused me slightly with this question, what has exim4 got to do with your Zimbra configuration? Perhaps you could explain in more detail what your configuration is and what you'r problem exactly is?

    No but I don't really understand what you're trying to do - please enlighten me. What, for instance, do you mean by 'mail routing'?

    I thought that I would need a program like exim to do the send and receive at the OS level. Then exim would send the emails to Zimbra. If that is not true and Zimbra does everything, then I will rebuild my test box and try again.

    It comes with postfix
    Zimbra is an email-server uses it's own customized instances of a serious collection of software packages - OpenLDAP, MySQL, Apache, Tomcat, Jetty(5.0), Postfix, Lucene, Verity, ClamAV, SpamAssassin, DSPAM (though off by default) Amavisd-new, Aspell, James/Sieve, Perdition, NGINX(5.0), etc.
