Exim

Mailspect requires Exim 4 or higher.

  • Setup MPP with the /usr/local/MPP/scripts/configure.pl script, by choosing Exim as the MTA .
  • Setup Exim4. There will be 2 Exim instances using different configuration files:

i.e. /etc/exim/exim.conf and /etc/exim/exim.conf.outgoing


A) Listenting Exim. Edit /etc/exim/exim.conf

It listens on the 25/tcp (standard smtp)

daemon_smtp_ports= 25

begin routers
#This has to be the 1st router!!
mpp_router:
driver = manualroute
transport = local_smtp_10025
route_data = 127.0.0.1
self = send

begin transports
local_smtp_10025:
driver = smtp
gethostbyname
allow_localhost = true
port = 10025

B) delivering Exim. Edit /etc/exim/exim.conf.outgoing (created from original exim.conf) It is listening on 10026/tcp (because MPP passes the scanned mail to TCP port 10026).

daemon_smtp_ports = 10026
local_interfaces = 127.0.0.1
  • Starting Exim:

A) Listening Exim can be started using:

/etc/init.d/exim start

or

exim -bd -q1h

B) Delivering Exim

exim -bd -C /etc/exim/exim.conf.outgoing
