Modifying Exim SMTP banner for multiple IP addresses

Modifying Exim SMTP banner for multiple IP addresses

Hi, I was wondering if its possible to expand this code to include more than one additional IP address? Quote: http://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=132 Code: smtp_banner =\  ${if and{\           {def:interface_address}\           {eq{${interface_address}}{1.2.3.4}}\         } {mail.host1.com}{mail.host2.com}} ESMTP $tod_full I have three dedicated IP addresses which have a different domain attached to each one, this means they have different PTR records to the Server Domain. The PTR’s are setup correctly, its just the…

Service httpd stopped and won’t start, user not deleted

Service httpd stopped and won’t start, user not deleted

Hi, I just (suddenly) received a mail from DA that service httpd is stopped. When I tried to (re)start it, it gave the following errors: # service httpd restart Stopping httpd: [FAILED] Starting httpd: Warning: DocumentRoot [/home/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM/public_html] does not exist httpd: bad user name USER I know it’s not the best thing to do, but when I manually add the folders /home/USER/domains/DOMAIN.COM/public_html, I keep getting the error: httpd: bad user name USER. So I guess a reseller client just deleted…

Emails landing in gmail SPAM folder

Emails landing in gmail SPAM folder

I have two servers running with directadmin installed. One runs CentOS 5.8 64x and the other CentOS 6.2 64x. I’ve been setting up hosting packages on both servers and I’ve got quite a big issue with the CentOS 6.2 server. Every email I send through it lands in gmails SPAM folder and I can’t find a way to fix it. I’ve tried changing the server IP, messing around with all kinds of recommended SPF records, DNS and such but nothing…

Exim dying, not sure why?

Exim dying, not sure why?

I have a VPS with Directadmin on it, and the server has been having some serious up and down issues lately. Every time it comes back up, Exim dies at least a couple times. The last time I found a log entry, something about not being able to read the delivery status. At any rate, I have a script that checks if exim is running, if not, restart. However, it doesn’t seem to be able to detect the fact that…

have made silly mistake

have made silly mistake

I have not use my site much, just the mail which is working. Would "play" with it, and thought I deleted an old backup, but deleted the actual domain root. I can change things when logged in only not the ROOT FOLDER domains. I cannot tick any box to the right of it in directadmin – and cannot uploade to it. I can easily create new folders, but as the root folder is empty, and I cannot access it, i…

PLEASE HELP! Email google thinks I’m using self-signed ssl, no pop3 access.

PLEASE HELP! Email google thinks I’m using self-signed ssl, no pop3 access.

My company uses gmail to access pop3 on the server, and last night gmail made changes to require strict ssl authentification (I think). In any case, gmail gives the error "SSL error: self signed certificate", but I am not using a self-signed cert. The web domain uses EV SSL. The domain is divinelighting.com (mail.divinelighting.com) on a dedicated IP. The server is on a different ip, and was on a self-signed certificate, but I have installed an SSL and gmail still…

Strange Dovecot unmatched entries?

I’m getting a load of these kind of Dovecot entry’s in my logwatch: Quote: Dovecot: auth: passwd(sales@domain.nl,77.169.xxx.xxx,</qB1xrsfsBdeNxxx>): unknown user: 1 Time(s) I changed the ip here and a bit of the code between the < > markers.

So there is no unknown user, no unknown password, I never have flaws in…

General advice on a new setup

General advice on a new setup

As i’m using DA for several years now i’ve had my share of issues with hardware failure, configuration errors and more… The plan arrived to create a virtual server environment so that I could create a test server to compile stuff on in development and later do the same on the production so that I would have less downtime etc. I got an offer from a friend to get a decent server ready for virtualisation and for a decent price…

Domain pointer + incoming mails rejected: ?

Domain pointer + incoming mails rejected: ?

Hello, Could perhaps someone help me with this ? I have a "domain.com" working perfectly, with mails directed/handled by Google Apps. I also have a "domain.eu" pointing to "domain.com".

However, when someone send a mail to …@domain.eu, it is always rejected: "The error that the other server returned was: 550 550 authentication required (state 13)" or "Delivery to the following recipients failed". Any idea on how to solve this ? THANK YOU VERY MUCH in…

Exim – Prevent From Spoofing

Exim – Prevent From Spoofing

Hi, I’m have a problem with default Exim configuration: User logged in on SMTP as a@a.pl can send mails with spoofed From header, for example from b@b.pl that is other user domain – not owned by a@a.pl Is it possible to block From header spoofing? Now, SMTP authorization is only theoretical when logged in user (via any account) can send mail as anyone other domain. Best Regards

Dns on VPS versus DNS on HostingCompany

Dns on VPS versus DNS on HostingCompany

Hello, I am having some trouble to understand the reason of the DNS of the VPS box. I put all my DNS entries in the DNS of the hostingcompany as they have multiple DNS boxes and that should be a much safer approach. However does this mean that I can just can remove all DNS entries in Direct Admin, or will this break things? One of the issues I am having is that exim sends local inside the box. However…
